Laîdou Group's story

The women of the group named Laidou are married and they are 28 years old on average. They each have 2 children and they live in large traditional families in the village of Djekonobougou, a prefecture of Dioila, located in the region of Koulikoro (second administrative region of the Republic of Mali).

They sell various merchandise, condiments, and peanuts.

The women of the Laidou group have requested their first loan from Soro Yiriwaso (Kiva Field Partner).

Sata D. acquires her general store products (tea, chewing gum, cookies, cigarettes, powdered milk, sugar, etc.) from the wholesalers on a weekly basis in the market in Dioila. She sells the products from her home, completing the sale in both cash and credit. Her clientele is made up of both women and men.

She expects to earn a monthly income of 25000FCFA which will be used to repay the loan and to reinvest back into the business.

In this group: Sata , Batoma, Sata, Tata , Mamou
