Bademgnadjourou Group's story

The 4 members of the Bademgnadjourou group are married women with an average age of 37 and, on average, 4 children. They live in monogamous families in the Babemba district, one of the popular districts of Sikasso town (3rd administrative region of Mali). This is their 10th loan from the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution, requested in order to satisfy their customers' needs.

Rokia is the group member who sells cosmetics and various other items. She is standing second from the left in the picture. She plans to use her loan to buy earrings, chains, necklaces and shoes for women. She gets her supplies from the wholesalers and makes her sales for cash or credit at the Médine market to a retail clientèle. She expects to make an average monthly profit of 27 500 francs, part of which will be used to pay off the loan and its interest and part of which will be used to build up her savings.

In this group: Mai , Oumou , Aminata , Rokia
