Djiguisseme 2 Group's story

The ten members of the Djiguisseme 2 group are married women, on average 34 years old with four children. Most live in polygamous families in Nangola, one of the villages in the Dioïla Prefecture of the Koulikouro region, which belongs to the 2nd administrative region of Mali.

They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso MFI to better organise their activities at the start of the winter campaign. The crops they speculate on are rice, ground nuts and millet, among others. This is their fifth campaign loan, and all previous loans were well reimbursed.

With this new loan, Matou Koné intends to buy seedlings and fertiliser before prices increase, small farming equipment and pay labor costs to cultivate her arable land, estimated at 3 hectares (approx. 7.5 acres).

The crops are sold after harvest in Nangola and the adjoining area, and in the town of Dioïla, to both men and women customers.

They hope to reach an average profit of 40,000 FCFA per campaign.
