The ten women of the Djekabaara 2 group are all married and average 40 years of age with four children each. The majority of them live in polygamous families in Sontiguila, one of the villages of the prefecture of Dioïla, in the Koulikoro region, which is the second administrative region of Mali.

They collaborate with the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, with the aim of better organising their activities at the beginning of the winter. The crops cultivated are among others peanuts, pearl millet and beans. The women are on their first farming loan from Soro Yiriwaso.

With this loan, Fatoumata D. is planning on buying intrants and small equipment, as well paying for the labour costs to maintain around a hectare of peanuts.

The produce, once harvested, is sold in the village of Nangola and its surroundings, as well as in the town of Dioïla to a customer base made up of men and women.

Fatoumata is expecting to make an average profit of 50,000FCFA for each season.

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.
