Tiessiri Group's story

The women of the Tiessiri group are on average 34 years old with four children. They all live in traditional extended families in Kouroubadougou, which is one of the villages in the San circle of the fourth administrative region of Mali.
These women met through family ties and do business in the buying and selling of seeds.
Having correctly repaid their previous seasonal loans, the women of the Tiessiri group request their first solidarity loan. Karia Mpere, who is the first woman standing on the right in the photo, plans to use her loan to buy a bag of 100 kilograms of groundnut seeds and 100 kilograms of millet. They buy their supplies in Kroubadougou and in the surrounding villages. They sell their goods at Kouroubadougou and Kimparana on market days to a clientele made up of both men and women for cash and often for credit.
They plan to make an average monthly profit of 15 000FCFA which they will use for expenses relative to health, food, clothing and school fees and the remainder will be reinvested in their businesses.
