A loan of $625 helped a member to purchase cereals.


Kokadiyereye Group's story

The women of the Kokadiyèrèyé group are all married and are, on average, 36 years old, have five children and live in traditional extended families in Gonido, in the Fana prefecture, in the region of Koulikoro (the second administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know each other through family ties and are engaged in the sale of food condiments and cereals, as does Rokia D.. These women of the Kokadiyèrèyé group are on their fourth joint loan following the example of Rokia D., who plans to use her loan to buy sacks of cereals. She generally gets her supplies in and around Fana. She makes her sales from home, at the market in Tingolé, and at neighboring markets, at retail, in cash and on credit, to a clientele of men and women. Rokia plans to clear a monthly profit of 20.000 FCFA which will be used for the family’s daily expenses, and the rest will be reinvested in her business.
