The ten women who make up the Badenyaton 2 group are married and live mostly in large traditional families. On average, they are 41 years old and have 3 children each. They live in Farabougou, one of the villages in the rural commune of Tesserela, Segou region (4th administrative district of Mali). The women met through family and marriage connections.

With the goal of having more land to cultivate, the women approached Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 2nd seasonal loan. Overall, the members of the group will grow groundnut, millet and black-eyed peas. Madame Mamou (seated, far left) plans to use her loan to buy one sack of complex cereal, one sack of urea, 50 kg of groundnut seed, as well as to hire workers for plowing, hoeing and harvesting in the fields. She stocks up on seed at the Gouassola fair, and hires laborers: men for plowing, and weeding done by the women's group in the village. Her goal is to cultivate over 4 hectares: 8 sacks of millet, 15 sacks of groundnuts, 2 sacks of black-eyed peas, and hay. Half of all crops grown are for sale and the rest is for the family to use. Profit is used for small household expenses like condiments and health care for the children. Just like all the women of Badenyaton 2, Madame Mamou's goal is for the village to become self-sufficient for its food needs.

Composé de dix femmes, les femmes du groupe BADENYATON 2 sont mariées majoritairement dans des grandes familles traditionnelles. Elles ont en moyenne 41 ans et 3 enfants par femme. Elles habitent Farabougou, un des villages de la commune rurale de Tesserela, dans la région de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des liens de mariage et de parenté.
Dans le but d’augmenter leurs superficies de culture, elles ont fait recours à Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 2ème cycle de prêt de campagne. Dans l’ensemble les membres du groupe vont cultiver l’arachide, le mil et le niébé.
Madame Mamou (Assise à l’extrême gauche) compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, un sac de complexe céréales, un sac d’urée, 50 kg de semence d’arachide, recruter la main d’œuvre pour les activités de labour, de sarclage et de récolte dans ses champs. Elle se ravitaille en semence à la foire de Gouassola, en main d’œuvre pour effectuer les activités de labour par les hommes et de désherbage avec l’association des femmes du village. Elle compte récolter sur une superficie de 4 hectares : 8 sacs de mil, 15 sacs d’arachide, 2 sacs de niébé et des fanes. La moitié de toutes les spéculations cultivées est destinée à la vente et le reste à la consommation familiale. Le bénéfice obtenu est utilisé pour prendre en charge les petits besoins du foyer en condiments et en soins de santé des enfants.
Madame Mamou tout comme les autres femmes de BADENYATON 2 a pour objectif d’assurer l’auto suffisance alimentaire dans le village.

The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
