A loan of $825 helped a member to buy artisanal products.

Siguidia Group's story

The women of the "Siguidia" group are on average 38 years old with four children and all live in traditional extended households in Kimparana, in the San circle in the fourth administrative of the Republic of Mali.
These women know each other through family connections and run businesses buying and selling various items such as artisanal products..
After having properly repaid their previous loans, the women of the Siguidia group are on their eighth solidarity (group) loan. Awa, the woman second from the left in the photo, intends to use her loan to buy 50 earthenware urns, and 60 water jugs. She gets her supplies in Mopti and makes her sales to a clientele comprising men and women, in cash and often on credit.
She foresees realizing an average monthly profit of 35,000 FCFA, which will be used to pay for expenses relating to health, food, clothing, and school fees, with the rest being reinvested in her business.

In this group: Awa , Mariam , Kadiatou , Awa
