Danaya Group's story

The Danaya group is made up of six women in the town of San. They are all married and are, on average, 40 years old with 4 children. They sell condiments, firewood and other various items.

In order to meet the ever-growing needs of their customers, the members decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso lending program. They are currently on their first loan cycle.

Kadia plans on using her loan to purchase supplies from San wholesalers, specifically 13 cases of bouillon cubes, a bag of cooking salt, 4 boxes of tomato paste, 5 kg of pepper and 50 kg of onions. She plans on making a profit of 26,000 CFA francs a month. The profits will be used to pay back her loan and support her husband. Kadia’s customer base is made up mostly of women, and she sells her products retail for cash and on credit.

The women of the Danaya group would like to continue with Soro Yiriwaso in order to make their business profitable.

In this group: Kadia, Aminata, Assan, Fatoumata, Bintou, Safiatou
