A loan of $1,225 helped a member to buy sundries for resale.


Sabali Group's story

SABALI consists of four women who average 33 years of age and seven children each. They live in nuclear families in Massablacoura, a district of the city of Bougouni (3rd administrative region of Mali).

This is their seventh collaboration with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to meet the needs of their customers. All prior loans were correctly repaid.

Their activities include gardening, selling food condiments, and in KADIA’s case, selling sundries. She is the one holding a child in the photo. She will use her loan to buy two boxes of Maggi cubes (bouillon), two bags of sugar, and one carton of powdered milk. She buys her merchandise from wholesalers at the big market of Bougouni, and conducts her sales at the same market and from home, for cash or credit. She sells at retail to a mixt clientele.

She expects to earn an average monthly profit of 15,000 CFAF, part of which she will use to help support her husband with the daily expenses. Any remainder will be reinvested in her activity.
