Danaya Group's story

The Danaya group is made up of married women, who average 37 years of age with four children each. They all live in traditional families in the town of Dioila, which lies in the Kaladougou municipality of the Dioila prefecture in the Koulikoro region (the Republic of Mali's second administrative region).

They got to know each other either because they were relatives, neighbors or friends. They have restauration activities and sells condiments, and they are now on their fifth group loan.

The customer, Djeneba, who is standing on the far right sells condiments. She gets her supplies of peppers, onions, smoked fish and groundnut paste every Saturday from the market in Dioila. She expects to make a monthly profit of 30,000FCFA. This profit will be reinjected into her business.

In this group: Djeneba, Mamou , Sitan, Salimata
