In this Group: Oumou , Kadiatou , Oumou , Kadia , Mariétou , Satou
The Nyètaa 2 group is composed of six women, all married and living in big traditional families. Their average age is 33 and on average they have 3 children each. They live in the village of Balamissala, in the rural community of Sébougou, Ségou region (fourth administrative region of Mali), and they became acquainted because they are either in-laws, neighbors, or related to each other.

Wishing to expand their arable land, they came to Soro Yiriwaso and are on their second agricultural (seasonal) loan. Members of the Nyètaa 2 group from the village of Balamissala grow rice, peanuts, millet, and okra.

Mrs. Mariétou D. wants to use her loan to buy 30 kg of rice seed, two sacks of fertilizer for grains, two tins of herbicide, and pay for labor to help her prepare the soil, transplant the rice seedings, and do the weeding in her fields. Preparing the soil is work reserved for men, whereas weeding and transplanting are work done by women from the village. She buys her agricultural inputs at the weekly market in Ségou (the big market).

With 3 hectares, she hopes to produce 8 sacks of peanuts, 10 sacks of rice, and about 30 sacks of okra. Part of her production will be consumed by her family, whereas the rest will be sold to have money for the children's school fees, household necessities, and health care expenses. Mrs. Mariétou D. aims to be able to raise goats and sheep.
