Ankadignongonye Group's story

The Ankadignongonyé group is made up of married women and one widow who have an average age of 43 and, on average, 4 children, and all live in extended traditional families in the village of Massoukou, Marka Coungo commune, Koulikoro region (second administrative region of the republic of Mali). They got to know each other via family and neighbourly relationships and friendships. They sell condiments, charcoal and sweets. The women of the Ankadignongonyé group are on their 4th group loan.

Nagnini, the first person sitting on the left of the picture, plans to buy condiments (a bag of salt, 3 packets of Maggi stock cubes, 2 kilos of onions) from the resellers of Marka Coungo, so that she can resell them there and from her home in her village. She expects to make an average monthly profit of 10 000 francs, part of which will be used to take care of the family's needs and part of which will be reinvested in her condiments business.

In this group: Sika , Alimata , Nagnini , Djeneba , Babenin , Molobaly
