A loan of $450 helped a member purchasing fresh fish.


Danaya Group's story

The Danaya group consists of 4 women, all married and living in polygamous families. They average 45 years of age and three children. They live in the village of Somonodougouni in the rural community of Konodimini in Segou region (the fourth administrative district of Mal) and know each other through family and marriage ties. The group members mainly sell fish, fresh and smoked.

In order to increase their working capital, the group members have decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso, and are now on the first solidarity loan.
Mrs. Mahawa Niaré plans to use her loan to purchase seven baskets of fresh village at the Niger river in their village. In order to have smoked fish, she properly washes her fish, places it on top of appropriate materials designed for it and smokes them over fire in a corner of her yeard, for at least two or three days. The smoked fish is sold out of her home and at the Konodmini market, for cash and on credit, to a diverse customer base.

Mrs. Mahawa Niaré plans to achieve an average monthly benefit of 25,000 West African Francs, which will be used towards healthcare expenses for her children and some everyday household needs.

In this group: Kadiata , Nêh , Mata , Mahawa
