Nadjegueton 1 Group's story

The members of the NADJEGUETON 1 group are married men, with an average age of 45, and an average of five children each. They all live in traditional families in Flazambougou, one of the villages in Sikasso, 3rd administrative district of Mali.
They are working with micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to be successful in their farming activities during the rainy season.
The men grow corn. With his loan, Nouhoum (standing at center in the photo) plans to buy intrants, seeds, and to pay for tilling costs on his 2 hectares of land.
After the harvest, the crops are sold in the village, at the Sikasso market to customers who are mostly retailers from the large towns.
He expects to make an average profit of 200,000 CFA francs per season.
This profit will allow him to repay the loan and also to help his extended family meet their everyday expenses.

In this group: Nouhoum, Oumar, Adama, Seydou, Inzan, Souleymane, Mahamadou, Abdoul Karim, Mahamadou, Bakari
