Ouyètiè 4 is a group of married women from the village of Nitabogoro of the town of Koutiala, Sikasso region (third administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They live in big traditional families and are on average 32 with at least 4 children. They mainly excel in cultivating peanuts and millet.

With the intention of making their agricultural businesses profitable, the members of the Ouyètiè 4 group decided to join the loan program of Soro Yiriwaso two years ago. After having correctly reimbursed their first loan, they are on their second rural loan.

The present loan will be used to buy a sufficient quantity of peanut and millet seeds, other small necessities for farming, and entrants for these crops, in the big market of Koutiala. After the rainy season, the harvests are stocked for a certain period so that they have more value before being sold at the big market of Koutiala and in the surrounding markets, retail (often wholesale) and for cash to a clientele mostly coming from the big towns.

Each of the members of the Ouyètiè 4 group expects, after their crops are sold, to make an average profit of 65,000 F CFA which will be used to reimburse the loan and for current family expenses.

Elles excellent principalement dans la culture de l’arachide et du mil.
Dans le souci de rentabiliser leurs exploitations agricoles, les membres du groupe Ouyètiè 4 ont décidé d’intégrer le programme crédit de Soro Yiriwaso depuis maintenant 2 ans. Après avoir correctement remboursé le premier prêt, elles sont à leur deuxième prêt de campagne.
Le prêt actuel sera utilisé pour acheter, une quantité suffisante de semences d’arachide et de mil, des petits matériels et des intrants pour la culture, au grand marché de Koutiala. Après l’hivernage, les récoltes sont stockées pendant un certain temps pour qu’elles aient de la valeur avant d’être vendues au grand marché de Koutiala et dans les marchés environnants, en détail (souvent en gros), au comptant à une clientèle venant généralement des grandes villes.
Les membres du groupe Ouyètiè 4 comptent réaliser chacune, après l’écoulement de leurs produits agricoles, un bénéfice moyen de 65 000FCFA qui sera utilisé pour le remboursement du prêt et les dépenses courantes de la famille.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. 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.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
