Badeya Group's story

The Badeya Group consists of seven married women with an average age of 35 years and three children at home. They live in nuclear families in the North Heremakono neighborhood of Bougouni. They are friends and neighbours who support each other's apple-selling businesses. To strengthen their financial and commercial capacity, they partnered with Soro Yiriwaso with whom they are now on their fourth loan. The three previous loans have all been repaid.

Batoma is the woman standing in the back on the left. With this loan she intends to buy eight boxes of apples and 18 cases of drinks from wholesalers in Bamako. She sells her wares at the market and at home, accepting cash and credit from a mixed clientele. Batoma hopes to make an average monthly profit of 60.000FCFA, which she will invest in the business and repay the loan.

In this group: Kadiatou, Sitan, Afou, Assetou, Mah, Diala, Batoma
