The ten members of the group Benkadi 3 of the BENKADI A association are married women with an average age of 38 years old and 3 children. For the most part, these women live in polygamous marriages in Tingole, the capital of a rural commune under the prefecture of Fana, the second administrative region of Mali.
They work with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to get financial support for their winter labors. Largely, their labor surrounds the cultivation of sorgho and peanuts. This is their fifth loan from the institution and all of their previous loans were completely repaid on time.
With this new loan they will purchase fertilizer, pesticides, other basic tools, and pay the hoeing and labor fees that are required to cultivate 26 hectares.
Some of their cultivation is shared among the group members for personal consumption and the rest is sold in the Marka-Coungo and Fana markets after the harvest to male and female clients.
They believe that they will make an average profit of 30 000FCFA after the harvest and sale of their crops.

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.
