The group Sabali of the association Djekadi is composed of ten married women of the city of Tominian, region of Ségou (4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali).  The women live in traditional families, average 31 years of age, and have least four children.  For about ten years, the women do commerce in a variety of items, such as soap, fish, grains, condiments, and store products, and they work in food catering, etc.

To make their businesses profitable, the group members decided to join the loan program of the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso about a year ago. 

The group's president Mougnoussi Sangaré is working in general commerce with her store called "Diverma", where you can find soap, holiday items, household products, and various other store goods.  She plans on using her loan to buy packets of different products from wholesalers in San and from Bamako.  These goods will be sold retail, for cash and sometimes on credit, in Tominian, to a rich and varied customer base. 

Mougnoussi envisions making a profit of 22,500 francs CFA per month that will be used to expand her store.

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.
