Djiguiya Group's story

The group Djiguiya is composed exclusively of married women, who average 31 years of age and four children each, all living in traditional extended families in the village of Warassala, Commune de Guégneka, Préfecture de Dioîla, 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 condiments, grains, and charcoal.

The women of the group Djiguiya are on their third solidarity loan, which will be used to purchase condiments, grains, and charcoal.

This client, MAÏMOUNA, who is standing in the middle, intends to purchase 15 kg of onions, 10 kg of smoked fish, a bag of rock salt, and other condiments from Fana suppliers. She will then sell the goods to customers in and around the village. She envisions making an average monthly profit of 15,000 francs CFA that will be used to meet family needs, and part will be reinvested in her business.

In this group: Kounde, Fatoumata, Maïmouna , Koyan , Setou, Djeneba
