Seneyiriwaton I Group's story

The eight members of the Seneyiriwaton I Group are all married women who are, on average, 42 years old and have four children. They all live in polygamous families in the village of Safecore, in Sanankoroba (the second administrative region of Mali).

The women would like to improve their agricultural businesses during the winter months, so they work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their fourth loan.

Saly Yiribatie (standing second from the left in the photo) grows peanuts and millet. She plans to use her loan to buy seed and other agricultural products, and pay labour costs for two hectares of land. She sells her produce in Sanankoroba to retailers and consumers.

Saly Yiribatie expects to make an average profit of 175,000 francs CFA over the loan period. She will use this to repay her loan and help her husband to provide for the day-to-day expenses of their household.

In this group: Sira , Saly Yiribatie , Senebou , Maimouna , Mamou Djibril , Nienedie , Ba Tene , Siraba
