Siningnessigui 1 Group's story

The 10 members of the Siningnessigui 1 group are married women with an average age of 42, on average 5 children and who all live in traditional family settings in Dialakorosso, one of the villages in Kadiolo, 3rd administrative region of Mali. They are working together with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso so that they are able to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 8th loan with the institution, and their previous loans have all been correctly repaid.

Kebedio, standing in the picture, with the white t-shirt on and carrying the rake, farms rice. She plans to use her loan to buy the agricultural inputs she needs to maintain her 1.5 hectares of farmland. She sells her produce after it's harvested in the village and the Kadiolo market, to a clientele made up of men and women. She expects to make an average profit of 100 000 francs per crop cycle. The profits will enable her to repay her loan and support her husband with the daily expenditures.

In this group: Kebedio , Fatoumata , Abi , Sali , Mama , Bere , Abiba , N'gnele , Nabitou , Worokia Yaya
