A loan of $300 helped a member to purchase groundnuts.

Djekafo Group's story

The women of the Djekafo Group are wives and widows, are on average 28 years old, have four children each, and live in large traditional families in the village of Zambougou, in the Koulikoro region (second administrative province in Mail). They know each other through kinship ties, as neighbors and friends. They sell groundnuts and shoes.

The women of the Djekafo Group are on their second group loan.

Ami, standing second from the right, intends to purchase 30 kg of groundnuts from the retailers in town in order to sell them in the village to a clientele of men and women. She hopes to make average monthly profits of 4,000 FCFA of which she will use part to tend to the needs of her family and part to reinvest in her groundnut selling business.
