Djekafo Group's story

The members of the Djekafo group are all married women, averaging 48 years of age with four children. They live in traditional extended families in the village of Klacouma, Dioila Prefecture, Koulikoro Region (the second administrative region of Mali).

They know each other through family links. They sell clothing, kitchen utensils, cereals, and condiments.

The group members are now on their tenth solidarity loan. Chitan D. buys her stock of kitchen utensils at the Masigui market. She sells out of her home and at the nearby markets, for cash and on credit, to a customer base composed of women and men. She plans to achieve an average monthly income of 40,000 West African Francs, which will be used for repaying the loan, covering some expenses related to healthcare, food, school fees, with the rest reinvested in her business.
