A loan of $575 helped a member to buy clothing for resale.

Siguidolo Group's story

The members of the Siguidolo group are all married women who average 41 years of age and six children each. They all live in extended traditional families in the village of Nalla, subprefecture of Fana, in the Koulikoro region (second administrative region of the Republic of Mali).

They know one another as neighbors, and through ties of kinship and friendship. They sell clothing, condiments, and tubers. This is their first group loan.
MAH C. plans to buy clothing from Fana wholesalers for resale on site at the village and in surrounding areas, for cash or credit, to a customer base composed of both men and women.

She expects to earn an average monthly profit of 15,000 FCFA, which she will use to make loan repayments and to cover expenses incurred for the children. Any remainder will be reinvested in her business activity.
