Danaya Group's story

The five members of the Danaya group are all married women, on average 40 years old, with on average 5 children each. Most of them live in monogamous families in Hamdallaye, one of the poorer neighborhoods in the city of Sikasso. They are asking for their third loan from Soro Yiriwaso, in order to satisfy customer requests. Mrs Kadia sells condiments and clothing, and is the middle person in the above photo. She will use the loan to purchase 5 dozen complete outfits for children, and will purchase these from wholesalers in Sikasso. She sells both from her hom and from the market, in cash, to a customer base mostly comprised of women. She hopes to earn a monthly profit of 27,500 FCFA (~55 USD), and will use part of this to pay the interest on her loan and the other part will be deposited into a savings account.

In this group: Kadia , Maimouna , Mariam , Djenebou , Aoua
