Benkadi C Group's story

The members of the Benkadi C group are married women with an average age of 40 and, on average, 4 children, who all live in polygamous families in Fanidiama, one of the villages in Kadiolo, in the Sikasso region, the 3rd administrative region of Mali. They are working with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 11th loan from the institution. Their previous loans have been correctly repaid.

Lagnon, standing in the middle of the picture, grows groundnuts. She plans to use her loan to buy seeds and agricultural inputs needed for the cultivation of half a hectare of farmland. After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village and at the Sikasso market to a clientèle made up of men and women. She expects to make a profit of 35 000 francs per crop cycle. This profit will enable her to repay her loan and also to support her husband with the daily living expenses.

In this group: Minata, Diata Bakary, Niamagolo, Lagnon, Maimouna Massata, Fatoumata Djeneba, Fatoumata, Minata Nanourou, Safiatou Mamine, Fatoumata Bample
