The ten members of the group "FOTEMOGOBAN 4" are married women, who average 32 years of age and two children each. The women live for the most part in traditional families in Commune de KAPALA, in Cercle de SIKASSO (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to carry out their farm work during the rainy season. They are on their third farm loan with the institution. The past loans were indeed paid back.

The crop grown is millet, as is the case with Ms. AMINATA BAKOROBA, who is sitting first from the right in the photo of this women’s group FOTEMOGOBAN 4. With her loan, she intends to purchase a 50-kg bag of fertilizer and a container of herbicide and to cover the cost of plowing for maintaining 0.5 hectare.

After the harvest, the produce is sold to a customer base composed of men and women paying with cash or credit in the village and in SIKASSO. She plans on making an average profit of 73,000 francs CFA per planting. This profit will enable her to pay back the loan with interest and also to help out her husband in covering day-to-day expenses.

In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
