Yeredeme Group's story

The women of the Yeredeme group, who are all married, are in average 34 yr-old with 3 children. They all live in traditional extended families in N'Tjifina, in the Fana prefecture of the Koulikoro Region (Second Administrative Region of the Republic of Mali). They met through family ties, and they trade soap, cooking oil, peanuts and grains.
The women of the Yeredeme group are ready for their first group loan, that they will use to buy bags of locally made soaps, 60 liters of oil, bags of peanuts and grains. They purchase their soap supplies from manufacturers in Fana and other products in the surroundings. They retail on markets in Fana and surroundings, to a client base of both women and men that they allow to pay in credit.
They expect to each make an average monthly profit of 30.000F CFA that they will use towards health care expenses, food and school fees and the remainder will be re-invested into their business.
