A loan of $3,150 helped a member to buy plastic shoes.


Nemassorola Group's story

Mostly living in monogamous married households, the five members of the Nemassorola group are on average 43 years old with two children. They all live in Kanadjiguila in the Mandé municipality/Kati Cercle, and know one another through their neighborhoods and businesses in the Kanadjiguila market. The group members have small businesses selling high-quality men's and women's shoes, clothing, and milk.

To increase their business funds, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their third group loan cycle.

Aminata (the woman standing second left to right in the photo) is a great saleswoman of high-quality men's and women's plastic shoes. She hopes to use her loan to buy 585 pairs of plastic shoes for all ages in Bamako. She will then resell the shoes in Kanadjiguila on the street to a clientele of mostly women.

With this loan, Aminata expects to earn an average monthly income of 95,000 FCFA which will be used to reinvest in her business and take care of small household needs.
