A loan of $2,100 helped a member to buy vegetables (cucumbers) for resale.

Nieta Group's story

The members of the Nieta Group are all married, either in monogamous or polygamous families. They are, on average, 36 years old and have four children. The women live in Bamako-Coura, a neighbourhood of Bamako, and know one another through working at the market in Bamako-Coura, and through neighbourhood ties.

The Nieta Group sell vegetables (cucumbers), clothes and eggs. The women would all like to improve their businesses so they work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their third group loan.

Nessa (standing on the far right in the photo) sells vegetables (cucumbers). She plans to use her loan to buy thirty sacks of cucumbers in Bamaka. She will then sell them in Bamako-Coura to customers who are mainly women.

Nessa expects to earn an average monthly profit of 100,000 francs CFA, and she will use this to reinvest in her business and contribute to the expenses of her household.

In this group: Aïchata , Mamou , Tenimba , Nessa , Kadia
