A loan of $625 helped a member to buy tubers.


Kafokatoala Group's story

The women of Kafokatoala Group are all married. On average, they are 31 years old and have three children. They live in traditional extended families in the village of Fantobougou, subprefecture of Fana, region of Koulikoro (second administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know each other through ties of kinship and neighborhood.

They work in catering and sell cereals. This is their third solidarity loan which they will use to buy food condiments, tubers and beans.

Korotoumou D., a member of Kafokatoala Group, wants to use her share of the loan to buy tubers at the market in Fana. She retails them at the same market in Fana, for cash and credit, to a clientele made up of women and men.

She expects to make an average profit of 15,000 CFA francs a month, which she will use to pay for daily household expenses. Any remaining amount will be reinvested in her business.
