Jiguisseme Group's story

The five members of the JIGUISSEME group are all married women, averaging 40 years of age and 5 children. Most of them live in polygamous families in HAMDALLAYE, a village in Sikasso, third administrative region of Mali.

They are seeking their ninth loan from Kiva's partner, the microfinance organization Soro Yiriwaso, in order to meet customer demand. All eight previous loans were repaid without problems.

KADIA D. intends to use her loan to buy 100 banana bunches and a few baskets of papayas. She gets her supplies at the grand market in MEDINE. She resells the bananas and papayas for cash, at her home and at the market in MEDINE and HAMDALLAYE, to a clientele comprising both men and women.

She foresees turning an average monthly profit of XOF 85'000 (ca US$ 170), to be used to pay for the daily expenses of her family.

In this group: Kadia , Aichata , Mariam , Mariam , Salimata
