Teimprokotie 1 is a group of married women from the village of Moribila Mankan in the San prefecture in the Ségou region (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They live in traditional families with their husbands, children, and other relatives. They are, on average, 36 years old with at least six children each, and they mainly grow peanuts.

Wanting to make their farming operations profitable, the group members decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan program four years ago. After having duly repaid their preceding loans, they are on their fourth farming loan.

Sali, standing beside her child, will use her loan to buy a sufficient amount of peanuts to plant, small tools and equipment, and other planting supplies at the large market in the city of Kimparana. After the rainy season, the harvest is stockpiled for some time in order to increase its value. Then it will be sold retail (often wholesale) at the big market in Kimparana, in Moribila, and in surrounding markets on cash basis to customers mainly from large cities.

After selling their harvests, the group members each plan to make a profit between 65,000 and 95,000 FCFA, which will be used to pay back interest on the loan and for daily living expenses.
