Groupe 2 De Djekafo Togo's story

The five members of group 2 of the association Djekafo of Togo are married women in major traditional families with an average of 42 years in age and 4 children. They all live in the village of Togo in the rural neighborhood of Skoïba in the region of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali) and know each other from relationships, marriages and the neighborhood. With the goal of expanding their farm land and having agricultural fertilizer ready in time for the beginning of winter, they resorted to Soro Yiriwaso and are in their 2nd cycle of a farm loan. They cultivate millet, hibiscus flowers, sesame, beans, and peanuts. Ms. Satou Fané intends to use her loan to buy 3 sacs of fertilizer, 50kg of seed peanuts and recruit, with the rest of the money, workforce for the jobs of plowing and weeding. She gets fresh supplies of seed and fertilizer at the Ségou faire (at the big market). With an plot of 3 hectares, she hopes to produce 800 kg of beans, 18 sacs of peanuts, 4 sacs of millet and bean stocks to make bales. The bales of beans are stored and sold during the off-season. A part of the harvest is consumed by herself, while the other half is stored and sold little by little for condiment needs and social occasions (marriage, baptisms and funerals). Like all the other members of the group, Ms. Satou Fané has as a goal to raise small ruminants to equip herself with agricultural materials.
