Djekafo Group's story

The women in the Djekafo group are all married and on average are 43 years old with 3 children. They all live in traditional extended families in the village of Siemana, Barouéli prefecture, Ségou Region (fourth administrative region of Mali). They know one another through community, kinship and friendship ties. They sell white clay, galettes (a cake similar to a pancake or crepe) and other items. The women in the Djekafo group are on their sixth solidarity loan, which will be used to buy white clay, grains, and boutique items. Djeneba T. plans to buy shea butter and two bags of millet for making galettes. She sells her products daily from her home and at the market, in cash and on credit to a clientele of men and women. She expects to earn a monthly profit of 20,000F CFA which will be used to pay the loan installments and to make contributions to social ceremonies. The remainder will be reinvested in her business.
