Danaya Group's story

The women in the Danaya group are 34 years old on average, and have an average of three children. They all live in traditional extended families in Kancene, a village in the cercle of Tominian (in the 4th administrative region of Mali).

The women are all related and are involved in trading food products, such as condiments, and other goods.

Having successfully repaid all their previous loans, the women in the Danaya group are requesting their 4th solidarity loan.

Baoula, pictured standing on the far right, intends to use her loan to buy 20 sacks of groundnuts, baskets of peppers, fresh tomatoes, onions, aubergines and baskets of cereals.

The women buy their supplies in Kancene. They sell their goods in Kancene and at local stalls to individual customers for cash or on credit. Their clientele includes both men and women.

The group hope to make a monthly average of 50 000 CFA francs, which will be spent on healthcare, food, school fees and reinvesting in their businesses.

In this group: Baoula, Bakourou, Bakoro, Batta, Awa, Sanataba, Bakourou, Mamou
