Djikiya Group's story

Djenebou Diabaté has her hand on the piece of fabric in the foreground of the photo. She is 24 years old, married, and has 2 children. Her business consists of selling various articles ("pagne" fabric, cups, and other items as seen on the photo). She buys her stock at Bamako and Kati and resells it in the markets in her neighborhood. She is very courageous in her work, and her husband often helps her. She could have a loan of 200 000FCFA.
She came to RMCR to develop her business, to become more independent and better support her children in their education and other activities.
