Tiessiri 2 Group's story

The ten members of the Tièssiri 2 group are married women on average 38 years old with three children. Most live in polygamous families in Madoudiarrabougou, one of the villages belonging to the Dioïla Prefecture in the Koulikoro region, part of the 2nd administrative region of Mali.

They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso MFI to better organise their winter activities. Their cash crops are millet, peanuts and beans. This is their third farming loan and the two preceding ones have been duly repaid.

With this new loan Kafoune S. intends to buy seeds and fertilizer, small farming equipment and pay labor costs in relation to ploughing and weeding, to cultivate approximately 1 hectare (2.5 acres) of millet and peanuts.

After harvesting the crops are sold in Dioïla and Massigui to both men and women customers. She hopes to reach earnings of about 35,000 FCFA by the end of the farming season.

In this group: Djelika , Madoussou , Maramou , Karia , Adiara , Oumou , Marama , Assata , Kafoune B. , Kafoune L.
