Djiguiya Group's story

The women of Djiguiya group are all married, are on average 40 years old with four children, and live in traditional extended families in the city of Fana, in the Banankabougou district, in the Dioïla prefecture of the Region of Koulikoro (the second administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know each other through family ties and are involved in selling clothing and food service. The women of Djiguiya group are on their first joint loan through Soro Yiriwaso. AMINATA S., a member of the group, plans to use her loan to buy clothing. She gets her supplies at the market in Fana during the weekly market days. She makes her sales daily from door to door in the city, for cash and on credit, to a clientele of women and men. She hopes to make a monthly profit of 30,000 CFA which will be used to pay the interest on the loan, cover health related expenses, and pay for food and school expenses, with the rest being reinvested in her business.
