Moussodjeton 2 Group's story

The members of the Moussodjeton 2 group are married women averaging 35 years of age, with four children. They all live in traditional families in Djalakoro, a village in the San [prefecture], in the fourth administrative region of Mali. They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to better manage their agricultural activities during the rainy season.

They are on their fifth loan with the institution. Their prior loans have been well repaid. They grow peanuts, as is the case of Awa, the first one seated on the right in the photo. With her loan, she plans to buy agricultural inputs [fertilizers etc], seeds, small agricultural tools and pay the cost of labor to work 1 ha [2.5 acres] of land. After harvesting, the produce will be sold in her village and in San, to a customer base composed of both men and women. She plans to earn 45,000 West African francs for the agricultural cycle. This revenue will allow her to pay off her loan and also to help her husband with everyday expenses.
