Sabaly Group's story

The Sabaly Group is composed exclusively of married women, who have an average age of 50 years, and an average of three children. They are all living in large traditional extended families in the village of Zanfina, municipality of Binko, prefecture of Baroueli, in the Segou region (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know one another through ties of kinship, vicinity, and friendship. The women of the Sabaly Group are currently on their first group loan, which will be used to buy various merchandise.

The client Awa is shown in the photo seated on the far left. With her loan, she plans to buy 50 kg of peppers and two baskets of tomatoes to be sold in the town of Fana. She hopes to earn an average monthly income of 10,000 Francs CFA which she will use to reinvest in her business and pay for family expenses.
