Jekadi C is a group of 10 women from the town of Kapala. They live with their husbands in large traditional households. They are all at least 34 years old and have, on average, 4 children. Located 17 km from Sikasso (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali), the town of Kapala is currently set up as an administrative centre in the Sikasso prefecture.
Like all the women in the town of Kapala, these group members farm tiger nuts.
With the goal of making their farming activity more profitable, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso's loan program two years ago. One of the group members, Bintou, intends to use her loan to farm 2 hectares of land by buying 4 bags of urea paying for labour and hoeing. These agricultural inputs will be bought at the grand market in Sikasso. Following the harvest at the end of the season, the products will be stocked for a certain while so that they will be worth more when sold at the grand market in Sikasso at retail (often in bulk) to various customers.
Bintou foresees realizing an average profit of 40,000 to 45,000 FCFA, which will be used to pay the interest on the loan and to provide for her family's ongoing needs.
