Djiguisseme 2 Group's story

The members of the Djiguisseme 2 group are married women with an average age of 39, on average 5 children, and who all live in traditional family settings in Kampogosso, one of the villages in San, 4th administrative region of Mali. They are collaborating with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to be able to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 5th loan with the institution, the 4 previous loans having been correctly repaid.

Ami Yacouba, sitting in the picture, with the black and white t-shirt on, farms groundnuts. She plans to use her loan to buy small agricultural equipment, agricultural inputs and seeds, and to pay for the labourers that she needs to maintain three quarters of a hectare of farmland. The harvested produce will be sold in her village and at the San market, to a clientele made up of men and women. She expects to make an average profit of 115 000 francs per crop cycle. The profit will enable her to repay her loan as well as to support her husband with the daily expenditures.

In this group: Bintou Bourama, Gnagali*, Ami Yacouba, Yama Drissa, Aicha Drissa, Fatouma Issa, Foune, Setou Seydou, Rokia Adama, Sarata
