Indell 6 Group's story
The members of the Indell 6 group are married women with an average age of 40 and, on average, 3 children. They all live in polygamous families in Bandiagara, the 5th administrative region of Mali. They are working with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to be able to carry out their market gardening activities during the end of the rainy season. This is their 3rd loan from the institution. Hawa, sitting in the middle of the picture, grows mainly onions. She plans to use her loan to buy seeds and fertiliser. After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village, Ondougou and Bandiagara to a clientele made up of men and women. She expects to have made a profit of 19 500 francs by the end of the season. This profit will enable her to support her husband with the family expenses (food, the children's education and healthcare) and to reinvest in her business.
