Groupe 2 De Bogoba Togo
In this Group: Nana , Djènèba , Mamou , Safiatou , Djenebou , Sata
The six members of the Group 2 of Bogoba Association of Togo are women married in polygamous families; on average, they are aged 41 and mothers of three children. All of them live in the village of Togo, in the rural community of Sakoïba in the region of Segou (4th administrative region of Mali).
They got acquainted through links of kinship and marriage.
In order to have agricultural inputs at their disposal at the beginning of the rain season and to be able to hire men (laborers) for plowing and weeding, they sought help from Soro Yiriwaso. They are currently into the 2nd cycle of a farming loan.
They are growing millet, groundnuts and beans.
Mrs. Nana Fané intends to use her loan to purchase 2 bags of fertilizer, 100 kg of groundnut seeds, 30 kg of bean seeds, and to hire manpower (men and women) for plowing and weeding.
She purchases her seeds and fertilizer at the Ségou fair (large market).
With her 3 acre parcel, she hopes to produce15 bags of groundnuts, 4 bags of millet, 600 kg of beans, as well as bean vines intended to make bales for the cattle.
The bean bales are stored and sold during the period of shortage. One part of the crop is self consumed while the other half is intended for sale.
Mrs. Nana Fané, like the other members of the group, aims to breed small ruminants and to ensure food self-sufficiency in the village.

Les six membres du groupe 2 de l’association Bogoba de Togo sont des femmes mariées dans des familles polygames avec en moyenne 41 ans et 3 enfants. Elles habitent toutes le village de Togo dans la commune rurale de Sakoïba dans la région de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali).
Elles se sont connues à travers des liens de parenté et de mariage.
Dans le but d’avoir des intrants agricoles à leur disposition au début de la saison des pluies et de pouvoir utiliser des hommes (manœuvres) pour le labour et le sarclage, elles ont fait recours à Soro Yiriwaso. Elles sont à leur 2ème cycle de prêt de campagne.
Elles cultivent du mil, de l’arachide et du haricot.
Madame Nana Fané compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, 2 sacs d’engrais, 100 kg de grains d’arachide, 30 kg de haricot de semence et recruter la main d’œuvre (hommes et femmes) pour les activités de labour et de sarclage.
Elle se ravitaille en semences et en engrais à la foire de Ségou (au grand marché).
Avec sa parcelle de 3 hectares, elle espère produire 15 sacs d’arachide, 4 sacs de mil, 600 kg de haricot et des fanes de haricot destinées à faire des bottes pour le bétail.
Les bottes de haricot sont stockées et vendues pendant la période de soudure. Une partie de la récolte est auto consommée tandis que l’autre moitié est destinée à la vente.
Elle a comme objectif à l’instar des autres membres du groupe de faire l’élevage des petits ruminants et d’assurer l’autosuffisance alimentaire dans le village.

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.
