Wilikoumado Group's story

The Wilikoumado group is made up of married women with an average age of 40 and, on average, 4 children. They all live in traditional families in the village of Tingole, Tingole commune, Dioïla prefecture, Koulikoro region (the second administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They got to know each via family and neighbourly relationships and friendships. They sell prepared food, condiments, tubers, charcoal and jars. The women of the Wilikoumado group are on their 2nd group loan. They are turning to Soro Yiriwaso in order to be able to satisfy their high customer demand.

Mah, the women standing second from the left, did not go to school. Having tried her hand at several revenue-generating activities without success, she now sells jars. She is planning to buy 20 jars from the wholesalers at the weekly market. She makes her sales from her home and at the village market for cash to a varied clientèle. She expects to make a monthly profit of 20 000 francs, part of which will be used for her goat-breeding business and the rest to cover the children's education expenses.
