Dembagnouman 5 Group's story

The seven members of the group "DEMBAGNOUMAN 5" are married women averaging 32 years of age and two children each. The women live for the most part in polygamous families in Wobougou, a village in the Prefecture of Dioïla.

They are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso with the goal of better organizing their work at the start of the rainy season. The crops grown include millet, corn, and peanuts. They are on their third collaboration with the institution.

With this new loan, ADIARRA, who is the first person standing from the right, plans to buy farm inputs and sundry equipment and to cover the cost of plowing for maintaining 0.75 hectare of millet and of peanuts.

After the harvests, the produce is sold in the city of Dioïla to a customer base composed of men and women. ADIARRA plans on making an average profit of about 100,000 francs CFA per planting.

In this group: Aissatou, Sali , Adiarra, Baoumou , Sanata , Awa, Fatoumata
