The members of the Djiguiya 2 group are married. Their average age is 30 and they have, on average, 6 children. They live in Sikouna 2, one of the villages of the Fana Sous-prefecture, Republic of Mali, in polygamous families with their husbands, co-spouses, parents-in-law, brothers, sisters, and children.

They are essentially engaged in selling grocery items: bags of powdered milk, packets of pasta, dried and smoked fish, sugar, salt, soap, etc. With confidence in each other and united by ties of work and friendship, these women have decided to collaborate with the loan program of Soro Yiriwaso this year. This is their first loan as a group. They generally procure their merchandise in the big open-air market in Fana or at the Marka Coungo fair, their economic metropolis for the aforementioned items.

They sell on a cash or credit basis, generally retail, at the same fair, under shed roofs, on tables, often even on the ground, or as ambulant salespeople going to village houses. Their clientele is essentially composed of women, children and male heads of families wanting to vary their meals.

With this loan, the women of Djiguiya will purchase 50 packets of pasta, 10 kg of fish, 20 bags of powdered milk, 10 kg of sugar, packets of tea, etc., that is, they will spend 50,000 FCFA, hoping to make a monthly average profit of 15,000 FCFA with which they plan to make payments on the loan, re-invest in their businesses, and contribute to family living expenses.
