Badegna : La Parenté Group's story

The "Badegna" group of the Sabaly association of Kimparana is made up of five married women. They live in large families, average 41 years of age and each have four children. This group of women specializes in selling vegetables and condiments.

To increase the size of their businesses, these clients decided three years ago to join the loans program of Soro Yiriwaso with which they are now on their fifth group loan. All previous loans were fully repaid.

This loan will allow them to buy fresh vegetables such as plantains, sweet potatos, yams among others in Sikasso, Koury and Bobo to retail over time as they do not keep long. They sell at the Kimparana market, at home, at crossroads, and in neighbouring marketplaces such as San, Koury and Tominia.

They believe they will make a profit of 120,000 FCFA thanks to this loan. This profit will be used to repay the loan interest and to contribute to the household expenses.

In this group: Fanta, Chata, Mamou, Awa, Alima
