Djekafo Group's story

The seven women of the Djekafo group are all married, and on average are 26 years old, have three children and all live in traditional extended families in the village of Dioni, in the Siemana Prefecture, part of Ségou Region (4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They got acquainted through family ties and they retail food, clay and various items.

These women from the Djekafo group are requesting their fifth group loan with the institution, having repaid in full the four preceding loans. This new loan will be used to buy bags of rice, a large quantity of various items and bags of white clay.

They get their supplies from wholesalers and producers in Barouéli and Konobougou. They sell their products at the Barouéli market, and at market fairs in the area, for cash, retail and on credit, to a customer base of both men and women.

They hope to reach average monthly earnings of 30,000 FCFA each, which will be used for daily family expenses, and the rest reinvested in the commercial activities.
