Fougnegue Iv Group's story

The members of the Fougnegue IV group are married women with an average age of 42, and with an average of 5 children. They all live in polygamous families in Ziangolodougou, one of the villages in Kadiolo, the 3rd administrative region of Mali.

They work with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso so that they can complete their agricultural activities during the off season.

This is their third loan with the institution. Their past loans have been repaid in full.

They grow peanuts. Abi is seated in the middle of the photo. She would like to use her loan to pay for labor, and to buy seeds and farm inputs to maintain 3 hectares of land.

After the harvest, they sell their crops in the village at the Kadiolo market. Their clientele is comprised of resellers and consumers.

She would like to earn an average profit of 180,000FCFA per season. This profit will help her repay her loan and help her husband with the day-to-day expenses.
