A loan of $400 helped a member to purchase condiments.

Sinignessigui Group's story

The four members of the group SINIGNESSIGUI are married women, who average 37 years of age and four children each. The women live for the most part in monogamous families in ATT BOUGOU, a new working-class district in Sikasso City (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They are on their third loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso out of concern for satisfying the needs of their customers.

Ms. Minata does commerce in condiments in this group of women. She is the first person on the left in the photo. She intends to use her loan to purchase about one box of Cub Magi and some onions that she sells retail locally and at the Medine market.

She envisions making an average monthly profit of 22,500 francs CFA. Part of the profits is used to pay the loan interest, and the other part goes toward savings.

In this group: Dialia , Fatoumata, Fatoumata , Minata
