Group 4 (of the association Badenya de Zambougou Fouta) is composed of six married women mostly in large traditional families.  The group members average 34 years of age and two children each, and they all live in the village of Zambougou Fouta, in the rural community of Tesserela (in Segou, the 4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali).  They women know one another through ties of kinship and marriage. With the goal of expanding their arable land, the group members turned to the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their first farm loan cycle.  They grow peanuts, millet, and sesame. 

Ms. Adiara C. plans to use her loan for buying three sacks of a fertilizer blend for grains and 25 kg of peanut seeds and for recruiting labor for plowing and seeding in the peanut field.  She gets her farm supplies at the Gouassola fair and recruits youngsters in the village. 

With three hectares of land, she plans on producing 28 sacks of peanuts, 3 sacks of millet, and 6 sacks of sesame.  Part of the millet and peanut harvests will be consumed at home, while the rest will be sold.   The profits obtained will be used to buy some condiments at the fairs and to ensure the health care of members of the household. 

Ms. Adiara C., like the other women of Group 4, has the goal of having enough food to be self-sufficient in the 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.
