Kotognontala Group's story

The group Kotognontala is composed of married women, who average 32 years of age and four children each, all living in traditional extended families in Dioila, in the Dougoukonon district, Commune de Dioila, Préfecture de Dioila, Région de Koulikoro (2nd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women know one another through ties of kinship, community, and friendship. They do commerce in charcoal and condiments, and they work in food service.

The women of the group Kotognontala are on their first solidarity loan, which will be used to purchase their merchandise.

This client, Assitan, who is second from the left in the photo, intends to purchase 50 kg of onions, 25 kg of salt, and 3 boxes of Maggi bouillon cubes. Purchases are made each week. These products will be sold retail to make a weekly profit of 30,000 francs CFA.
