Benkadi 2 Group's story

The members of the Benkadi 2 group are married women with an average age of 40, an average of 3 children and who all live in polygamous families in Zerlaba, a village in the Sikasso region, the 3rd administrative region of Mali. They are working with Soro Yiriwaso in order to be able to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 8th loan from the institution; the previous loans have all been correctly repaid.

Kary, sitting in the middle of the picture, farms groundnuts. She plans to use her loan to buy the agricultural inputs and seeds she needs to maintain her 1 hectare of farmland. She sells her harvested produce in her village and at the Sikasso market to a customer base made up of men and women. She expects to make an average profit of 150 000 francs per growth cycle. The profits will allow her to repay her loan and support her husband with the daily expenses.

In this group: Kary Yacouba, Alama Ouassa, Nasseta Kalifa, Afou Kleno, Djenebou Fousseini, Diata Sinaly, Sitan Sinaly, Alimata Seydou, Diaratou Yacouba, Rokia Kalifa
