The women of the Badegna group are all married, average 33 years of age and four children each, and live in traditional extended families in Gonido, Fana sub-prefecture, in the Koulikoro region (second administrative region of Mali).

They know each other through family connections. Their trade is selling food condiments and cereals, as Koumba D. does it, for example. This would be the fourth loan for each woman in the Badegna group, just like for Koumba, who plans to use this loan to purchase bags of cereals.
She usually buys her stock in and around Fana from farmers and sells from home, at the Tingolé market or at the fairs in the region, retail, for cash, and on credit, to a customer based composed of both women and men. She plans to obtain a monthly income of 15,000 West African Francs, which will be used towards daily family expenses, and the rest reinvested in the business.

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.
