but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to pay labour costs and buy agricultural inputs, small equipment and seeds.
Djiguisseme 4 Group's story
The members of the Djiguisseme 4 group are married women with an average age of 28, on average 3 children, and who all live in traditional family environments in Kampogosso, one of the villages in San, the 4th administrative region of Mali. They are collaborating with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to be able to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 5th loan with the institution and the previous 4 loans have all been correctly repaid. Ami, sitting in the middle of the picture, farms groundnuts. She plans to use her loan to buy small agricultural equipment, agricultural inputs and seeds, and to cover the labour expenses of the people needed to maintain 1.25 hectares of farmland. The harvested produce will be sold in her village and at the San market, to a clientele made up of men and women. She expects to make an average profit of 185 000 francs per crop cycle. The profit will enable her to repay her loan as well as to support her husband with the daily living expenses.
