A loan of $1,075 helped a member to purchase children's clothing.

Danaya Group's story

The Danaya Group is made up of married women living with their spouses and children within the framework of a nuclear family. Members have an average age of 41 and an average of seven children each. They all live in Sebenikoro, one of the districts of Bamako. They know each other through the bonds of family, community and friendship. The members of the group sell industrially-made children's clothing, cosmetic products and fruit juices. In order to replenish their cash supplies, the members of the group decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their third group loan.

Mariam, the woman standing to the far right of the photograph, has established a solid reputation for selling children's clothing. She plans on using this loan to purchase 35 sets of children's clothes in bulk from the main market. She will then travel around Sebenikoro selling these items of clothing to a predominantly female customer base. With this loan, Mariam hopes to earn an average monthly profit of 45,000 CFCA, which will be reinvested into her business and also used to meet her children's needs.
