Siguidiale 1 Group's story

The ten members of the Siguidialé 1 group are married women with an average age of 45 and an average of four children. Mostly, they live in polygamous families in Koba, a village in the prefecture of Dioila, Koulikoro region (Mali's Second Administrative District).

They work with Soro Yiriwaso with the goal of better organizing their activities as the rainy season begins. They grow peanuts, millet, corn and beans. This will be their third seasonal loan. Their previous loans have been fully repaid.

With this new loan, Djeneba F. will buy fertilizer and small tools and pay for hired labor to work one hectare of peanuts and beans.

The harvest will be sold in the village of Nangola and the surrounding area and in the town of Dioila to both men and women. The group members hope for an average profit of CFA 45,000 at the end of the season.

In this group: Diamatio, Bintou, Rokia, Seba, Djeneba, Karia, Sanata, Awa, Mama, Nah
