The six women of the Badenya group all live in traditional families. They average 37 years of age with four children each. They all live in the village of Zambougou in Ségou (the Republic of Mali's fourth administrative region). They got to know each other as neighbors, relatives, through marriage and through their income-generating activities in the village of Zambougou. They have small businesses selling condiments and grains and carrying out restauration activities. The group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso in order to boost their businesses and are on their fourth group loan.

Djelika (who is standing third from the right in the photo) has a significant restauration activity in Zambougou and the surrounding areas. She is planning to use her loan to buy a sufficient quantity of millet and rice to satisfy customer demand. She sells her dishes for cash and often on credit to a mixed customer base.

Djelika hopes to make an average monthly profit of 40,000FCFA with this loan and she will use this profit to provide for her children's small needs and to expand her business. She would like to continue to the partnership with Soro Yiriwas. N.B. The sixth woman in the group is not in the photo because she was at a funeral.
