The six women of the group Sabali are married for the most part in polygamous families and average 42 years of age and five children each. The women live in the village of Zambougou, in the rural commune of Sanando, Region of Ségou (4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know one another through ties of marriage, community, and kinship. The group members do commerce in embroidered pagne cloth, plastic utensils (buckets, bowls, etc.), and condiments (such as peanut butter, fresh tomatoes, etc.)

With the goal of increasing their business capital and building up their inventories, the group members decided to collaborate with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso. And they are now on their fifth solidarity loan cycle.

Ms. Mâh T., who is the president of the group, is known in the village for selling peanut butter. She intends to use her loan to buy 3 sacks of peanuts wholesale at the Konodimini fair.

To make peanut butter, the peanuts are sorted by hand to remove impurities, and then they are roasted using a cask designed for the circumstances. Next, they are skinned. Finally, the peanuts are crushed in a mill to obtain the peanut paste ready for consumption. Sales are made by cash or credit at the house, by special order, and at the small village market. The customer base is composed of women and men.

With this loan, Ms. Mâh T. hopes to make an average monthly profit of 25,000 francs CFA that will be used for reinvesting in the business and meeting sundry needs at home. Just like the other women of the group, she has the goal of increasing her business volume through the partnership with Soro Yiriwaso.

Les six femmes du groupe Sabali sont mariées majoritairement dans des familles polygames avec en moyenne 42 ans et 5 enfants par femme. Elles habitent le village de Zambougou, dans la commune rurale de Sanando, région de Ségou (4ème Région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des liens de mariage, de voisinage et de parenté. Les membres du groupe font le commerce de pagnes brodés, d’ustensiles en plastiques (seaux d’eau, bols etc.), de condiments (tels la pâte d’arachide, la tomate fraîche) etc.
Dans le but d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce et de constituer leurs stocks de vente, les membres du groupe ont décidé de collaborer avec Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 5ème cycle de prêt solidaire.
Madame Mâh T., qui est la présidente du groupe, est connue dans le village pour sa vente de pâte d’arachide. Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, 3 sacs de grains d’arachide en gros dans la foire de Konodimini.
Pour faire de la pâte d’arachide, on débarrasse les grains des impuretés par triage manuel, on grille ensuite les grains à l’aide d’une barrique conçue pour la circonstance puis on les décortique pour l’enlever des coques fines et enfin on les broie au moulin pour avoir de la pâte prête à la consommation. La vente se fait au comptant et à crédit, à domicile, sur commande et au petit marché du village à une clientèle composée de femmes et d’hommes.
Madame Mâh T. espère réaliser avec ce prêt un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 25 000FCFA qui sera utilisé pour être réinvesti dans l’activité et prendre en charge les petits besoins du foyer. A l’image des autres femmes du groupe, elle a pour objectif d’augmenter le volume de son activité dans ce partenariat avec Soro Yiriwaso.
