Djamadjigui (L’Espoir Des Hommes) Group's story

Djamadjigui is a group of eight women of the village of Kimparana (San Prefecture, Ségou Region) who are neighbors. They average 36 years of age, are married, and are mothers of at least six children.

To expand their business, the members decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso loan program two years ago. The preceding loans enable them to consolidate their work and to have more customers and gain their loyalty. They do different work (catering and selling fruit, vegetables, and condiments). The group members, with their experience, have a great capacity to adapt to market realities. And so they change the nature of their business according to the opportunities and customers needs. The current loan will be used to buy different goods and resell them at the Kimpara marketplace and in neighboring villages. They get their supplies from the neighboring towns of Sikasso and San from accredited wholesalers.

Because of the rapid turnover of goods, they intend to realize an average profit of 120,000 francs CFA over the duration of the loan. A large portion of the profits will be used to address typical family expenses.

In this group: Sitan, Mama, Rokia, Djenebou, Minata, Mama, Founé, Fatoumata
