Danaya Group's story

The women of the Danaya group are from Hamdallaye in the Koutiala prefecture and Sikasso region. They are all in traditional families with their husbands, children, other relatives. They know one another very well. On average, they are 29 years old, married, and have at least three children.

These women from the Danaya group sell various products such as condiments, cereals, fabric, indigo, etc. In order to enhance and expand their revenue-generating activities, they decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso. This is their fifth group loan.

The woman seated second from the right, Nana, sells bazin (damask) fabric in various colors - white, green, yellow, red, and other colors. She would like to use her loan to buy pieces of bazin fabric and fabric dyes in Koutiala. They sell them for credit out of their homes and at the market to a diverse clientele.

While the other members of the Danaya group each want to earn an average monthly profit of 180,000 FCFA during this loan cycle, Madame Nana would like to earn 200,000 FCFA.

In addition to reimbursing their loans, they use one part of their revenue to pay their personal expenses and grow their business.

They would like to reinforce this partnership with Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their stock.

In this group: Nana , Bintou , Natenin, Ina
