Dembagnouma Ii Group's story

The Dembagnouma II group is composed of 10 married women with an average age of 29, an average of 3 children, and they live in polygamous families in Wobougou, one of the villages in the Dioïla prefecture, in the Koulikoro region, the second administrative region of Mali.
They are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to better organize their rainy season activities. They grow, among other crops, rice, pearl millet, peanuts, and beans. They are on their second seasonal loan and their previous loan was repaid in full.
With this new loan, Maramou D. plans on buying fertilizer and small farming equipment, and paying the labor costs involved in maintaining approximately 1.8 hectares of peanuts.
The harvested crops are sold in Dioïla or Massigui to a client base made up of both men and women. She hopes to make a profit of 75,000 francs CFA by the end of the season.

In this group: Assan , Hawa , Yaye , Kadidia , Maramou , Djelika , Sitan Soumaïla , Baoumou Issa , Matou Issa , Mama
