Djantoyerela Group's story

The members of the DJANTOYERELA group are all women who have an average age of 40 years and 1 child each. They all live in traditional extended families in Yangasso in the circle of BLA (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali) .
The women know each other through family ties. They buy and sell general food products for a living.
After successfully repaying their previous loans, the women in the DJANTOYERELA group are now taking out their 5th group loan. AWANI is the 2nd woman from the left. She plans to use her portion of the loan to buy two 100 kg bags of rice, condiments, vegetables and tubers. They get their supplies from YANGASSO and SAN on market days. They sell their products in YANGASSO to a customer-based consisting of women and men. She plans to make an average monthly profit of 38,000 FCFA that she will use to cover health, food, clothing and education costs. She will reinvest the rest of the money in her business.
