Danaya Group's story

The women of Danaya Group ("Confidence") are all married. On average, they are 47 years old and have three children. They live in extended traditional families in the city of Barouéli, prefecture of Barouéli, region of Ségou (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know each other through ties of kinship.

They sell milk and clothing and work in catering. This is their twelfth solidarity loan which they will use to buy heads of slaughtered animals, milk and clothes.

Assan D. buys every day heads of slaughtered animals from the local butchers. She cooks them in a sauce and sells them, for cash and credit, to a clientele made up of women and men.

She expects to make an average profit of 30,000 CFA francs a month, which she will use to pay the installments of the loan, and provide her family with health care, food and tuition fees. Any remaining amount will be reinvested in her business.
