Bendiya 3 Group's story

The Bendiya group is composed of 10 married women who, on average, are 44 years old and have 3 children. Most of them live in polygamous families in Kegne, one of the villages of the Dioïla prefecture, Koulikoro region, 2nd administrative region of Mali.
They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to better organize their activities for the beginning of the rainy season.
Crops cultivated are peanuts, pearl millet, beans and corn. This is their fifth planting loan and all previous loans have been fully repaid.
With this new loan, RAMATOU D. intends to pay for small tools and planting supplies before the price increases and for ploughing to maintain approximately 1.4 hectare of peanuts and beans.
The crops are sold in the towns of Dioïla and Fana after the harvest to a clientele composed of men and women. They expect to make an average profit of 40,000 CFA at the end of the crop year.
