A loan of $425 helped a member to buy rice.

Djiguitougou Group's story

The Djiguitougou group is composed mainly of widows. These four women are on average 50 years old with five children. They all live in the Darsalam area of Ségou and know each other through neighbourhood and familial relations. They run businesses selling galettes, cereals, clothing, and second-hand goods. With the goal of expanding their business, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 13th solidarity (group) loan.
Salimata (second from the right in the photo) is known in Darsalam and at the Médine Ségou market for her cereal sales. She intends to use this loan to buy two bags of rice from the fairgrounds of the Office du Niger agency zone. She resells her goods at retail in cash and on credit to a clientele composed mainly of women. With this loan, Salimata hopes to realize an average monthly profit of 30,000 FCFA, which will be used to reinvest in her business and ensure her health needs.

In this group: Nènè, Fatoumata, Fatoumata, Salimata
