Siguidolo Group's story

The women in the Siguidolo group that is made up of married women, spinsters, and widows, are on average 37 years old with two children. They all live in extended traditional families in Konobougou, in the Baroueli prefecture, Segou region (fourth administrative region of the republic of Mali). They met through family, neighbourhood, and friendship ties. They do catering, they sell plastic objects, and fabrics. This is their fifteenth loan. Client Assan, who is the first person on the left in the row of women who are sitting, plans to buy two sacks of rice and condiments from the resellers at the market. This is for the preparation of dishes that she sells at the market in Konobougou, to her clientele of men and women. She hopes to make an average monthly profit of 50 000FCFA which she will use for her family's needs and to reinvest in the catering business.

In this group: Maman , Assan, Binta , Djominatou , Korotoumou, Fafa
