A loan of $2,225 helped a member to pay plowing expenses and buy fertilizer and herbicides.


Dableni Ton Group's story

The seven members of the group called DABLENI TON are married men with an average age of 40 and five children. They live in polygamous families in LOBOUGOULA, seat of the township of the same name, in Sikasso prefecture. (third administrative region of Mali.)

They collaborate with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to succeed in their agricultural pursuits during the rainy season. This is their third collaboration with the institution and their prior loans have been correctly reimbursed. The crop they grow is maize.

With this new loan, DANAYA, who is the president of this group, intends to pay plowing expenses and buy fertilizer and herbicide. Their crops are sold after harvest in the village and also at the Sikasso market to a clientele composed of men and women.

DANAYA hopes to make an average profit of 120,000 per season, which will be used to cover family needs.

In this group: Danaya , Moussa Nanourougou , Sekou , Ousmane , Lamine , Moussa Segue , Salia
