A loan of $1,750 helped a member to purchase charcoal.

Horonkantigui Group's story

The eight women of the Horonkantigui group are all married 35 year olds with an average of four children, and live in polygamous families in Kafela, one of the villages in Sikasso, the third largest region in Mali.
They are on their fifteenth loan with Soro Yiriwaso in order to meet their customers' rising demand, and all of their previous loans have been successfully repaid. This group sells charcoal via one of their members, Nawa. She aims to use her loan to purchase 100 bags of charcoal. She sources her goods from the nearby villages and sells them from the markets in Sikasso and to her family. Her customer base is made up of men and women, and she takes cash sales. She aims to generate an average monthly profit of 75,000 FCFA which will be used to meet her family's everyday needs and to repay her loan.

In this group: Nawa , Djenebou , Assanatou , Maminata , Sali , Mariam, Nassoun , Djatou
