Danaya is an association of Koutiala women who know one another well, since they live together in the same district, in large traditional families with their husbands, children, and co-wives.  Married, these women average 34 years of age and have at least three children each.  They buy and sell cosmetics, clothing, ingredients for food catering, and firewood.  To increase the size of their businesses, the members of the group decided to join the loan program of the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso. 

Assétou Boiré, who is one of the members of the group Danaya, buys and sells cosmetics of all sorts (incense, ointments, perfumes, etc.)  In addition, she occasionally sells fine accessories, necklaces, brackets, and earrings.  She is in high demand.  Assétou intends to use her loan for buying a sizable quantity of cosmetics.  She procures these goods wholesale at the big market of Koutiala, and then she sells them retail, accepting cash from a customer base essentially of women.

While the other group members each plan on making an average profit of 105,000 francs CFA over the course of this cycle, Assétou herself plans on making 120,000 francs.  In addition to repaying these loans, the women are using part of the revenues for coping with typical family expenses.

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.
