Badegna Ii Group's story

The eight members of the Badegna II group are married women with an average age of 37 and 3 children each. Most of them live in polygamous families in Maban, one of the villages of the prefecture of Dioïla, Koulikoro region, 2nd administrative region of Mali. They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to better organize their activities at the beginning of the rainy season. The crops cultivated are, among others, pearl millet, peanuts, fonio ( a type of millet), beans and sesame. This is their sixth planting loan and all previous loans have been fully repaid. With this new loan, SATA D. plans to pay for planting supplies, small agricultural tools and ploughing costs to maintain approximately 1 hectare of pearl millet, peanuts and sesame. The crops are sold in the towns of Dioïla and Massigui after the harvest to a clientele composed of men and women. They expect to make an average profit of around 60,000 CFA per planting.

In this group: Badjiguina, Assimon, Marama, Awa, Tenin, Alimata, Aramatou Abdou, Sata
