Tiessiri Iv Group's story

The seven members of the group Tièssiri IV are married women who average 29 years of age and 4 children. They all live in polygamous families in Baba, a village in the Commune of Massigui, Prefecture of Dioïla, Region of Koulikoro (2nd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women are collaborating with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso with the goal of organizing their work better at the start of the off-season. The crops grown include rice and peanuts. The group members are on their fifth collaboration with the institution. With this new loan, AWA intends to buy farm inputs and to pay for plowing in order to maintain about 0.25 hectare of rice and peanuts. After the harvests, the produce is sold in the city of Massigui to a customer base composed of women and men. AWA plans on making an average profit of about 15,000 francs CFA at the end of the planting season.
