A loan of $2,525 helped a member to buy clothes for resale.


.siguidia Group's story

The Siguidia group consists solely of monogamous women. They are on average 34 years old with three children. They all live in Djicoroni and know each other through their neighborhood. The group members sell items of clothing (lightweight damask cloths and pagnes, traditional wax cloth) of all grades, as well as bags of mineral water. To increase their cash supply, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso, and are on their third group loan cycle.

Djènèba (the first woman standing to the left of the photo) has a great reputation in clothing sales (lightweight pagnes, etc.) She intends to use her loan to buy 20 lengths of pagnes and 60 meteres of lightweight fabric in Bamako. She resells these pieces retail in Djicoroni, traveling to a mixed clientele.

With this loan, Djènèba hope to earn an average monthly profit of 75,000 FCFA, which will be used to reinvest in her business. Through this partnership with Soro Yiriwaso, her goal is to buy a lot for residential use.

In this group: Djènèba , Mariam , Assan , Setou
