Sabali Group's story

This Sabali group is composed of married women who have an average age of 26 and on average, 2 children. They live in nuclear families with their children and spouses in the Massabla-Coura neighborhood of the town of Bougouni which comes under the third administrative region of the Republic of Mali.

These women met through their businesses; they all essentially sell condiments. In the intention of developing their businesses and stocking up so as to satisfy the needs of their clientele, they decided to join the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso. They are on their second group loan; the preceding loan was correctly reimbursed.

With this loan, they intend to buy 20 tins of 2 kg each of tomato paste, 8 sacks of 25 kg of cooking salt, 15 packs of 100 individual Maggi cubes, and various other condiments. The products are bought from wholesalers in Bamako and are sold retail in the market at Bougouni. Their clientele is essentially composed of women, and the condiments are sold for cash or on credit. Each of the women expects to make a monthly profit of 30,000 F CFA with this loan. The profit will be reinvested in their businesses.

In this group: Kadia , Rokia , Awa , Batoma
