Djamadjigui 2 Group
In this Group: Mariam , Minata , Bintou , Fatoumata , Alimata Sibiry , Maïmouna
Predominantly married into large polygamous families, the six members of the group Djamadjigui 2 are on average 40 years old and have 3 children. They all live in the village of Moudjirila in the urban community of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali) and know one another through marital and parental ties. With the goal of increasing their cultivable land, they appealed to Soro Yiriwaso and are on their second farm loan. Millet, fonio (a millet grown in Mali), peanuts and rice are the crops cultivated by the members of the group. Mrs. Mariam Traoré expects to use her loan to buy 2 bags of complex fertilizer, 20 kg of peanut seeds and to recruit the manual labor for the labor and hoeing activities in the fields. She gets her supply of agricultural inputs at the large market in Ségou, and her manual labor from the association of young people and women of the village. She hopes to produce 13 bags of peanuts, 6 bags of millet and 3 bags of fonio on her 1.5 hectares of cultivable land. The millet and fonio she produces she consumes herself, while the peanuts produced are sold to pay for the health needs of her children, perishable foods and social cases. Mrs. Mariam Traoré, like all the other women of the group, has the objective of raising small ruminant animals, which will eventually allow them to have their own steer for labor.

Mariées majoritairement dans des grandes familles polygamiques, les six membres du groupe Djamadjigui 2 ont en moyenne 40 ans et 3 enfants. Elles habitent toutes dans le village de Moudjirila dans la commune urbaine de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des liens de mariage et de parenté.
Dans le but d’augmenter leurs superficies de cultures, elles ont fait recours à Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 2ème cycle de prêt de campagne.
Le mil, le fonio, l’arachide et le riz sont les spéculations cultivées par les membres du groupe.
Madame Mariam Traoré compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, 2 sacs de complexe céréale, 20kg de semence d’arachide et recruter la main d’œuvre pour les activités de labour et de sarclage dans ses champs.
Elle se ravitaille en intrants agricoles au grand marché de Ségou, en main d’œuvre avec l’association des jeunes et des femmes du village. Elle espère produire 13 sacs d’arachide, 6sacs de mil et 3sacs de fonio avec sa superficie de culture de 1,50 hectare.
La production du mil et du fonio est auto consommée tandis que celle d’arachide est vendue pour la prise en charge des soins de santé des enfants, des denrées alimentaires et des cas sociaux.
Madame Mariam Traoré tout comme les autres femmes du groupe a pour objectif de faire l’élevage des petits ruminants qui par la suite peut lui permettre d’avoir ses propres bœufs de labour.

The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
