A loan of $400 helped a member to buy peanuts, condiments, and cereals.


Danaya Group's story

The members of this Danaya group are married women living in general in polygamous families with on average 4 children. They met because they are neighbors, all residing in Selingué.

Specialized in selling cereals, they do their buying every week in the markets of Selingué and those of neighboring villages. Then the stocks that they have put together are turned over to wholesalers coming from Bamako (the capital of Mali).

With this loan of 50,000 F CFA per member, they expect to be able to buy 500 kg of cereals and peanuts. The average monthly profit is estimated to be 15,000 F CFA which will allow them to cover their daily family expenses and make repayments on the loan.

In this group: Nagnouma , Tenin , Massiga , Bintou
