Saudjouka Group's story

Aminata is a female merchant from Mali. She is married, 62 years old, and the mother of five children including one 25 year-old girl who is now married. She did not get a chance to attend school. Among the boys, two attend school who are thirteen and seven years old. On the picture, Aminata is sitting behind the table with her condiments.
Her main business is selling condiments and sauces. Aminata has been doing this business for more than 30 years in front of her house, before RMCR [Kiva's partner] arrived in her village.
Since the arrival of RMCR it has been her wish to get a loan, as she had been looking for a long time for a way to get funds for her business.
Her ambition is to start farming in addition to her sales business, but she does not have enough funds to do so. Given this lack of funds, Aminata decided to apply for a loan with RMCR in order to buy some condiments at the local market. She aims to resell them for a few months and to later resell them at the same local market. The earnings will allow her to prosper financially and to take care of her children, who are her main concern.
