In western Mali, near the frontiers of Senegal and Mauritania, the city of Kayes is a major ethnic and commercial crossroads. The Senegal River passes through the entire region, and many market gardens lie along its banks. The river is an important resource in this zone of the Sahel, and the waters are transported in containers by local women to allow the manual watering of tiny plots of land to produce fruit and vegetables intended for the local market. The Senegal River, which begins at the confluence of the Bafing («black river») and the Bakoy («white river») rivers slightly upstream from Kayes, runs for 1,000 miles (1,600 km) across four countries. The hydraulic stations along its course allow the irrigation of only 234 square miles (600 km2) of farmland, but its basin measures 136,500 square miles (350,000 km2) and provides water for nearly 10 million people.
