A loan helped buy tomatoes and cucumbers.


Nieta Group's story

The four members of the Nieta group are married and in polygamous relationships. On average, they are 34 years old and have three children. They all live in Bamako-Coura, a neighborhood in Bamako. They know one another through neighbors and their revenue-generating activities in the market. They sell vegetables, wax pagnes (traditional wrap arounds), and cosmetics. With the goal of bolstering their inventory, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. This is their fifth group loan. Madame Mamou (second woman from the left in the photo) sells vegetables of all types. She would like to use her loan to buy 50 baskets of tomatoes and 14 plates of cucumbers from the garden in Sotuba (a neighborhood in Bamako). She resells for retail prices in Bamako to a clientele comprised of women. Madame Mamou plans on earning an average monthly income of 100,000 FCFA that she’ll use to reinvest in her business and pay for her children’s education.
