A loan of $350 helped a member to purchase condiments to sell.

Sebeallahye Group's story

All of them married in traditional extended families, the seven women of the group SEBEALLAHYE average 40 years of age and five children each. The women all live in the Lafiabougou district, in Cercle de SAN, in Région de Ségou (4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali), and they know one another through ties of community, marriage, and kinship. They buy and sell condiments and a variety of items.

With the goal of increasing their business capital, the group joined the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their first solidarity loan.

Ms. RAMATA (second person standing from the right in the photo) intends to use her loan to purchase a large quantity of various condiments from SAN wholesalers. Accepting cash or credit, she makes her sales retail at her house. Her customer base is composed of men and women.

With this loan, Ms. RAMATA hopes to make an average monthly profit of 8,000 francs CFA that will be used for reinvesting in her business and meeting household needs.
