Tiemprokotie Ii Group's story

Group Tiemprokotie II is a part of the Married Women Association of the village of Moribila Mankan, in the former San district, Ségou region (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women live in traditional families. They are on average 39 years old with at least five children. They cultivate groundnuts.
In order to make their farms more profitable, the members of the Tiemprokotie II group decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan program four years ago. Having successfully repaid their previous loans, they are now on their fourth agricultural loan.
Salimata, who sits in the middle, will purchase a sufficient quantity of groundnut seeds, small equipment and agricultural cultivation inputs at the great market in the city of San. After the rainy season, crops are stored for a certain time to gain value before being sold at the great market of Kimparana San and in neighboring markets, either retail or (often) wholesale, to customers generally coming from big cities.
After selling their agricultural products, the group's members hope to each make a profit of 47,500 to 95,000 FCFA; it will be used to pay back the loan and for the family's daily expenses.
