Tagne (Aller De L’Avant) Group's story

Tagne is a group of women from Baramba who know each other well and who live in traditional larger families with their husbands, children, and other parents. They have an average age of 30 years, are married, and have an average of 4 children each. The women of the group are in the business of selling various items, catering, etc.

In order to increase their businesses, the women decided to partner with the loan program of Soro Yiriwaso. They are on their first group loan. Diarra is a member of the Tagne group, pictured standing with a ladle that is used to remove grilled items from the oil. She plans on using her loan to purchase a bag of beans and oil. She purchases the beans at the market, and resells her cooked pastries for cash from her home and at the market to a diverse customer base.

While the other members of the Tagne group hope to earn an average profit of 50,000 francs CFA each at the end of the loan cycle, Diarra hopes to earn 60,000 francs CFA. In addition to repayment of the loan, the women will use a portion of their earnings to care for their personal expenses and to increase their business funds.

In this group: Korotoumou , Fatoumata , Djenebou , Diarra, Kadia
