A loan of $1,500 helped a member to buy fresh fish.


Danaya Group's story

The members of the Danaya group are all married women, averaging 35 years of age with five children. They all live in traditional extended families in the town of Fana, Koulikoro Region (the second administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know each other through family, friendship and neighborhood ties. They prepare food for sale and sell fresh fish, fruits and yams. The members of the Danaya group are on their third solidarity loan. Noumoutenin, the first one standing on the left, plans to buy two baskets of fresh fish from suppliers from Fana and Dioila in order to resell them locally, out of her home and at the Fana market, for cash and on credit, to a customer base composed of both men and women. She plans to achieve an average monthly revenue of 75,000, which will be used for family needs, with part of the revenues reinvested in her business.
