A loan of $1,025 helped a member to purchase condiments to sell.


Tiessiri Group's story

The group Tiessiri is composed of married women averaging 33 years of age and five children each all living in traditional extended families in Wakoro City. The women know one another through ties of kinship, community, and friendship. They do commerce in condiments, vegetables, and tubers, and they work in food service. The women of the group Tiessiri are on their fourth solidarity loan.

This client, MADJOUGOU, the first person standing from the left in the photo, plans each week to purchase 4 kg of onions, 2 kg of salt, a can of tomato paste, and 1 kg of garlic, which will all be sold to village housewives.

She envisions making an average monthly profit of 20,000 francs CFA that will be used to meet family needs, and part of it is reinvested in the commerce of condiments.
