Siguitemogosson Vi Group's story

The ten members of "Siguitemogosson VI" are married women averaging 36 years of age and three children each, all living in traditional families in Tionsso, a village in Koutiala (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to carry out their farm work during the rainy season. They are on their fourth loan with the institution. The past loans were indeed paid back.

The crop grown is rice, as is the case with Mama Diakalia, who is the third person standing from the right in the photo. With her loan, she intends to purchase farm inputs, seeds, and sundry equipment inputs and to pay for plowing to maintain 1 hectare.

After the harvest, the produce will be sold to men and women customers in the village and in Koutiala. She plans on making a profit of 60,000 francs CFA at the end of the season. This profit will enable her to pay back her loan and also to help her husband to cover day-to-day expenses.
