The nine women of the Gnogondeme group are all married, average 39 years of age and have an average of four children. The majority of them live in polygamous families in Siekourani, a village in the sub-prefecture of LOULOUNI, in the region of Sikasso (third administrative region of Mali).

They are taking out their third loan from the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, with the aim of increasing their turnover. This group of women trade in "pagnes" (colourful West African fabric), condiments and, in the case of Mawa O., cereals such as rice. Mawa O. is planning to buy three 50kg bags of rice with her loan. She gets her supplies at the market in Loulouni and in fairs in neighboring villages. The rice is resold on a retail basis at the market in Loulouni, to a customer base made of men and women, for cash. She envisages making an average monthly profit of 7,000FCFA, of which part will be saved for social purposes and the rest invested in her 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.
