A loan of $800 helped a member to buy condiments.

Sabaly Group's story

SABALY is a group of women who are, on average, 39 years old and have five children. They live mostly in monogamous families in HAMDALLAYE, one of the districts of the city of Sikasso.
They are on their first loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso, in the hopes of being able to meet their customers’ demand.
Mrs. Adiaratou is in the business of selling condiments in this group of women. She is standing in the middle.
She plans to buy, with her loan, 10 cases of Maggie cubes, a sack of onions, and a case of tomato concentrate. She makes her sales from home, to women, at retail, for cash and on credit.
She foresees making an average monthly profit of 22,500 FCFA, a part of which will be used to pay back the loan and interest, and the other part will go into savings.

In this group: Saran , Adiaratou , Djenebou , Aminata
