Djiguisseme Group
In this Group: Fatoumata , Tata , Mariam , Kadia , Souraka
The women of the Djiguissèmè group of the Sabougnouma association are all married, are on average 33 years old with four children, and all live in traditional extended families in Sirimou, in the Fana sub-prefecture of the Koulikoro region (2nd administrative region of the Republic of Mali).

They became acquainted through family ties and trade grain cereals and charcoal. Trading cereals (peanuts, millet, corn, fonio, and sesame) is the preferred activity of Tata Temeté, one of the group’s founding members.

The Djiguissèmè group women are requesting a fourth group loan, having fully repaid all three previous loans. Tata Temeté will use her portion of the loan to buy bags of cereals locally, in the village and the surrounding area. She sells locally at the Tingolé market and in surrounding market fairs, for cash, retail and on credit, to both women and men customers.

She hopes to reach an average monthly income of 22,500 FCFA which will be used for daily family expenses, the remainder being reinvested in the commercial activities.

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.
