A loan of $1,650 helped a member to buy milk.


Danaya Group's story

The women of the Danaya group have an average age of 27 and, on average, 5 children, and all live in extended, traditional families in Sienso, a village in the Circle of San / Ségou (the 4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali). These women got to know each other via family relationships and sell various items such as groceries and milk. Having correctly repaid the previous loans, the women of the group are on their 12th group loan.

Beman, the only woman sitting down, is a large milk seller and plans to use her loan to buy 120 litres of milk a day, in order to supply the "Danaya Nono" dairy with milk, wholesale. She gets her supplies from the village's shepherds. She expects to make an average monthly profit of 50 000 francs, part of which will be used to cover health, food and educational expenses, and the rest of which will be reinvested in her business.

In this group: Beman , Mamou , Tenin , Oumou
