A loan of $900 helped a member to buy milk.

Djiguiya Group's story

All married and in large traditional families, the nine women of the Djiguiya group are on average 38 years old with 4 children. They all live in the village of Cinzara in the region of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali) and met through neighborhood, marriage and family ties. They buy and sell milk in all its forms.

With the goal of increasing their business, the members of the group are on their first loan in solidarity with Soro Yiriwaso. Madam Malado (the second seated person from right to left) plans to use her loan to buy 150 litres of fresh milk from the cooperatives of breeders in San. After having boiled the milk, she sells retail for cash and credit to a clientèle that consists of men and women. With this loan, Madam Malado hopes to make an average monthly profit of 35,000 FCFA which will be used to reinvest in her business and take care of the needs of her home.
