Sabali Group's story

The Sabali group is composed of four married women. On the average, they are 37 years old, with four children. They live in nuclear families in the Massablacoura district of the town of Bougouni. They know each other as neighbors and friends as well as through their business. In order to strengthen their financing capacity in order to improve their business, they have joined the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution and are now on the 11th loan. The ten prior loans have been duly repaid. The group members sell condiments, which is the case of Kadia, for example. She is the second one from right to left in the photo. She plans to use this loan to buy condiments in various quantities from the wholesalers in Bougoni. She sells at the market and out of her home, retail, for cash and on credit, to a mixed customer base. She plans to earn an average monthly income of 20,000 West African francs, which will be invested in her business and used to repay the loan.

In this group: Kadiatou, Awa, Sissi, Kadia
