Danaya Ii Group's story

The 10 members of the DANAYA group are married women. They are 42 years old on average and have an average of four children. Most of them live in polygamous families in Diassela, a village in the Koulikoro region, in the second administrative region of Mali.

They work with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to better organize their businesses at the start of the rainy season. The crops they plant include peanut, millet, and beans.

This is their third collaboration with the institution. With this new loan, KONIMBA, the second person from the left in the front row, would like to buy farm inputs, equipment, and plowing for about 0.5 hectares of peanuts and millet together with beans.

After the harvest, they sell their crops in the village of Beleco to a clientele of men and women. She would like to earn a profit of 110,000 FCFA per season.
