Danaya Group's story

The Danaya group is made up of married women. On average they are aged 37 years, with three children, and all live in traditional extended families in the city of Wakoro, Koulikoro region (second administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They met each other through family ties, neighbors, and friendship. They do business selling tubers, fowl, and preparing and selling food. The women of the Danaya group are on their fifth group loan. The customer Bassama, the first person of the right in the seated row, counts on buying three bags of tubers from the sellers in Dioïla and Nangola which she will sell to customers in the village. She envisages making an average monthly profit of 20,000XOF which she will use for her family's needs, reinvesting a portion into her tuber selling business.
