Nyètaa Group's story

Married within polygamous families, the six women in Nyètaa group are on average 45 years old with four children. They live in Pelengana, center of a rural community in the region of Ségou. They know each other as neighbors, family friends, and business partners within the market Chateau in Segou. They are in the business of selling fabric of different qualities (bazins, wax and fancy) and fruits. In an effort to boost sales and restock their inventory, the group joined Soro Yiriwaso. They are on their 5th round of financing.
Mrs. Marietou called Mama (1st woman standing on the right of the photograph) is a big seller of the fabrics (Bazin, Wax, Fancy) in Ségou. She intends to purchase 20 reams of wax fabric from wholesalers at the market in Ségou. She sells door to door on credit and at different markets in Segou to both men and women. Mama hopes to make an average monthly profit of 60,000 cfa francs. The profits will be reinvested in the business and used to take care of her families health and schooling needs. Like her fellow group members, she hopes to buy a plot of land to build a home in partnership with Soro Yiriwaso.
