Benkadi 6 consists of married women from the village of Sesso in the prefecture of San, Segou region (Mali's Fourth Administrative District). They live in traditional families. On average, each is 29 and has five children. They are peanut farmers.

Hoping to make more profit from farming, the group decided to sign up with Soro Yiriwaso this year, and are receiving their first operational loan.

Baco D. plans to use her loan to buy seed peanuts, small tools, and fertilizer at the big market in Tene. After the rains end, the harvest is stored long enough to increase in value and be sold in the big markets of Tene, Mopti and other nearby markets at retail (often, wholesale) to customers who mostly come from large towns.

Each member of the group is counting on making a profit of between 15,000 and 38,000 CFA after their produce is sold. They will use the money to pay loan interest and day-to-day family expenses.

Le groupe Benkadi 6 est constitué de femmes mariées du village de SESSO dans la préfecture de SAN, région de SEGOU (quatrième région administrative de la république du Mali). Elles vivent dans des familles traditionnelles, ont en moyenne 29 ans, 5 enfants et cultivent de l’arachide.
Dans le souci de rentabiliser leurs exploitations agricoles, les membres du groupe ont décidé d’intégrer le programme crédit de Soro Yiriwaso cette année et sont à leur premier prêt de campagne.
BACO T. compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, une quantité suffisante de semence d’arachide, des petits matériels et des intrants agricoles, au grand marché de TENE. Après l’hivernage, les récoltes sont stockées pendant un certain temps pour qu’elles aient de la valeur avant d’être vendues au grand marché de TENE, MOPTI et dans les marchés environnants, en détail (souvent en gros), au comptant à une clientèle venant généralement des grandes villes.
Les membres du groupe comptent réaliser chacune, après l’écoulement de leurs produits agricoles, un bénéfice de 15000 à 38000 FCFA qui sera utilisé pour le remboursement des intérêts du prêt et les dépenses courantes de la famille.

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.
