Djiguiya Ii Group's story

The members of "DJIGUIYA II" are married women, who average 42 years of age and four children each. The women live for the most part in polygamous families in Sokourani, a village in Dioïla, Région de Koulikoro (2nd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso with the goal of better organizing their work at the start of the rainy season. The crops grown are peanuts, millet, and sesame. They are on their fourth loan with the institution. With this loan, Djeneba, who is the second person standing from the right in the photo, intends to purchase farm inputs and sundry equipment and to pay for plowing to maintain about 1 hectare of millet and peanuts. After the harvest, the produce will be sold to men and women customers in Marka Coungo City. She hopes to make profit of about 135,000 francs CFA per planting.
