Nyetaa Group
In this Group: Rokia , Fadima , Djenebou , Salimata
The four members of the Nyetaa group are all married and living in polygamous families. On the average, they are 38 years of age and have seven children. All of them live in the Darsalam district, urban community of Ségou (the 4th administrative district of Mali).

They know each other as neighbors, friends or family members, and their commercial activity consists in purchasing and reselling miscellaneous articles: clothing, bed linens, cosmetics and deodorants. It is the need to boost their business capital which has motivated them to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. They are now on their 7th group loan.

Mrs. Salimata G. is one of the group members who excel in selling cosmetics and clothing. She plans to use her loan to purchase two dozen boxes with perfumes and deodorants of various types and quality grades. She usually purchases her stock in Bamako and sometimes in Ségou. She sells her wares at the big market of Ségou on market days.

She hopes to achieve a monthly income of 65,000 West African Francs which will be used to repay her loan, and allow her to contribute to the cost of food and social events (weddings, baptisms, funerals).

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.
