Keneya Group's story

The KENEYA group is made up of married women, who are on average 54 years old and have five kids. They all live in traditional enlarged families in the village of Kofra Bamana, commune of Massigui, prefecture of Dioîla, region of Koulikoro (second administrative region of the Republique of Mali). They met each other through family, neighborhood, and friend connections. They sell baskets. The women of the Keneya group are on their twenty-first group loan. The client, Minata, the first person on the left, sells baskets. She plans to buy 140 baskets from button-makers. They will be sold in Massigui to a mixed clientele. She foresees making an average monthly profit of 75,000 francs CFA. This profit will be reinvested into the business and used to repay the loan.

In this group: Korotoumou , Madounamba , Minata, N'dia
