Fougnegue Vii Group's story

The members of the Fougnegue VII are married women with an average age of 34 years, and on average four children. They all live in polygamous families in Ziangolodougou, one of the villages in Kadiolo, third administrative region of Mali.

They collaborate with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to bring their farming activity to a close during the of-season.

This is third loan with the institution; the previous loans have all been repaid in full.

Denefou is seating at the center on the photo. The cultivated crop is millet. She is planning on using her loan to buy farm inputs and seeds to maintain 1.5 hectares.

After harvesting, the production is sold in the village, at the Kadiolo market, to customers who are resellers and consumers.

She is planning on making an average profit of 90.000 Francs CFA per farming cycle. This profit will allow her to pay her loan and also to help her husband with the daily expenses.

In this group: Djeneba Amadou, Denefou, Ouarraba, Kadiatou Lamoussa, Abi Adama, Mariama Amadou, Fatoumata Amadou, Alima Bakary, Abi Amidou, Awa Fatogoma
