Allah Kan Dèmè Group
In this Group: Hawa , Maïmouna , Sata , Aminata , Mariatou
The Allah Kan Dèmè group is comprised of five women, all married in polygamous families. They are 46 years old on average and have six children, all of them living in Sakoïba (fourth administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know each other through family and marriage ties, as well as belonging to the same traditional women's aid association in the village.

The group members buy and sell mostly firewood, charcoal, and grains such as peanuts.

The need to increase their working capital motivated them to work with Soro Yiriwaso. After six fully repaid loans, they are on their seventh group loan.

Mrs. Maïmouna C., one of the group members working with food, plans to use her loan to buy seven bags of unshelled peanuts. She gets her supplies in Sakoïba and surrounding villages. She shells the peanuts, sorts them, grills them and peels them. She sells them from home and at the Ségou market, for cash and on credit, generally to women who transform the peanuts into paste.

Mrs. Maïmouna hopes to make an average monthly profit of 20,000 FCFA, which will be used to pay back her loan, contribute to certain family expenditures, and participate in social events (marriages, baptisms, funerals). Her goal is to maintain her small business and help her family buy draft animals.

Le groupe Allah Kan Dèmè est composé de cinq femmes toutes mariées dans des familles polygames. Elles ont en moyenne 43 ans, 6 enfants et habitent toutes à Sakoïba (4ème Région administrative du Mali).
Elles se sont connues à travers des liens de parenté, de mariage et d’appartenance à une même association traditionnelle d’entraide des femmes du village.
Les membres du groupe achètent et revendent essentiellement du bois de chauffe, du charbon de bois et des céréales telles l’arachide.
Le besoin d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce les a motivé à collaborer avec Soro Yiriwaso. Après six prêts tous correctement remboursés, elles sont à leur 7ème prêt solidaire et Madame Maïmouna C. qui est un des membres évoluant dans l’alimentaire compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, 7sacs d’arachide en gousse. Elle s’approvisionne à Sakoïba et dans les villages environnants. Elle décortique son arachide, le trie, le grille et le débarrasse de sa pluche. Elle revend à domicile et à la foire de Ségou au comptant et à crédit à une clientèle composée essentiellement de femmes transformatrices d’arachide en pâte.
Madame Maïmouna espère réaliser un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 20.000FCFA qui sera utilisé pour rembourser son prêt, contribuer à certaines dépenses familiales et participer aux évènements sociaux (mariages, baptêmes, funérailles).
Son ambition est de pérenniser son petit commerce et aider son ménage à acheter des animaux de traits.

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.
