BADENYA is a group from the association DIANTOYERELA of N’TENTOU. It comprises four women who know one another through ties of kinship and community. The women average 40 years of age and are married mothers of six children. They have different businesses, such as trading in condiments and vegetables, just like MARIAM, who is the first person in the photo standing from the left. The women live in large traditional families in N’TENTOU, in the sub-prefecture of Ouelessebougou (Région de Koulikoro, Republic of Mali). They have been working in small-scale commerce for several years and are in high demand for their businesses.

Concerned about satisfying the growing needs of their customers, the group members decided to join the loan program at the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso three years ago. They are on their fifth solidarity loan.

MARIAM, the group's president, is well-known in N’TENTOU and excels at selling vegetables condiments. She intends to use her loan to purchase different kind of condiments (black pepper, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, oil, salt, tomato paste). She gets her supplies from Bamako and locally from wholesalers. And she resells her goods in OUELESSEBOUGOU for cash or on credit to a customer base composed of men and women.

She hopes to make a monthly profit of 25,000 francs CFA that will enable her to repay the loan and reinvest in her business.

The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
