Nadjegueton 5 Group's story

The members of the group NADJEGUETON 5 are married men who average 47 years of age and five children. They all live in traditional families in Flazambougou, a village of Sikasso (third administrative region of the Republic of Mali).

They have partnered with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in an attempt to better organize their farming activities during the rainy season. They grow maize, and Mahamadou, first from the left in the photo, plans to use his loan to buy inputs and seeds, and to pay for the the cost of ploughing one hectare of land.

After the harvest, the crops are sold in the village at the market of Sikasso to a clientele consisting mainly of resellers from the big cities.

Mahamadou expects to earn an average profit of 150,000 FCFA per season. This revenue will allow him to repay his loan and to help the family with daily expenses.

In this group: Lamissa, Mahamadou, Drissa, Diakalia
