Jiguiya Group's story

The seven members of the JIGUIYA group are all married. They average 39 years of age and 3 children each. Most of them live in monogamous families in SANOUBOUGOU, a district of the city of Sikasso, 3rd administrative region of Mali.
This is their 3rd collaboration with Soro Yiriwaso, a microfinance institute, in order to meet the needs of their customers. Past loans have been repaid with no issues. This group of women is in the fruit business through AWA.
AWA intends on buying 7 cartloads of fruits from farmers and at the big market of MEDINE, from wholesalers.
The fruits are then sold retail and for cash, both at the market in HAMDALLAYE as well as door to door to a clientele of men and women.
She expects to make a monthly profit of 90.000FCFA, which will be mostly used for her family's daily expenses.

In this group: Mariam, Dialia, Rokia, Awa, Nana, Awa, Kadiatou
