The 10 women of the DJANTOYERELA 3 group are all married and live in Zoha, a village in the Sous-Prefecture of Fakola, Prefecture of Kolondièba in the third region (Sikasso) of the Republic of Mali. They have an average age of 32, 3 children each on average, and they live in polygamous families. They met due to bonds of kinship and neighborhood.

When Soro Yiriwaso began to give rural loans which correspond to their work as farmers, these women seized the opportunity. They are on their fourth rural loan, and all three preceding ones were correctly reimbursed.

They want to use this new loan to pay for plowing and weeding, and to buy seeds, fertilizer, and herbicides. They want to plant 6.5 hectares of peanuts, rice, and millet. These women hope to have an average harvest of 2 tons per hectare, or 13 tons in all. A part of the harvest will be sold in the various weekly markets and the rest destined for consumption.

The profit after their sales will be used to reimburse the interest on the loan, cover school fees, for the health expenses of their children, and for buying wedding trousseaux for their daughters.

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.
