Fougnegue Vi Group's story

The members of the Fougnegue VI group are married women with an average age of 39, and with an average of 4 children. They all live in polygamous families in Ziangolodougou, one of the villages in Kadiolo in 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. Of the seated women, Sicko is the 2nd from the left. She would like to use her loan to pay for labor costs, and to buy farm inputs and seeds to maintain 1 hectare 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 90,000FCFA per season. This profit will help her repay her loan and help her husband with the day-to-day expenses.

In this group: Minata Amadou, Dialia Drissa, Marietou Drissa, Fatoumata Drissa, Sicko, Abi Madou, Diata Abou, Sali Fatogoma, Gno Bakary, Mamou Dramane
