A loan of $600 helped a member to buy cereals.


Miriya Group's story

MIRIYA is a group of 4 women who are either related or neighbors. They are 34 years old in average. Married, and with at least 4 children, they all have various activities like selling fabrics, cereals (like MOSSODIE), vegetables, and many other items. They live in traditional families in the city of Bougouni (Sikasso Region, Republic of Mali). In order to better meet the needs of their customers, the group has decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan program. This is their second loan, having successfully paid back the first one. With this loan, MOSSODIE (the one with a large container filed with sorghum) plans on buying 6 bags of sorghum and 5 bags of fonio. She buys these items in markets around Bougouni and sells them retail, cash or on credit, to a customer base composed mainly of consumers. She hopes for a 15.000 FCFA profit, which will enable her to pay back her loan and reinvest in her business.

In this group: Fatoumata , Mossodie , Djenebou , Korotoum
