Wolale Vi Group
They grow groundnuts, fonio and sesame. In order to ensure that their agricultural investments are profitable, the members of Wolale I Group decided two years ago to participate in the loan program of Soro Yiriwaso. After having properly repaid their previous loans, which were solidarity loans, they apply now for their first farming loan.
Saran Koni D. wants to use her loan to buy adequate quantities of fonio and groundnut seeds, small equipment and farming supplies at the great market in San. After the rainy season, the harvest will be warehoused long enough for its value to increase, before it is sold at the great market in San and at the nearby markets, retail (or often wholesale) for cash to customers who mostly come from big towns.
After their produce is sold, the group members expect to make a profit of 13,000 to 18,000 CFA francs each, which they will use to pay the interest on the loan and ongoing family expenses.
Dans le souci de rentabiliser leurs exploitations agricoles, les membres du groupe ont décidé d’intégrer le programme crédit de Soro Yiriwaso depuis maintenant 2 ans. Après correctement remboursé les prêts précédents qui étaient des prêts solidaires, elles sont à leur premier prêt de campagne.
SARAN KONI D. compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, une quantité suffisante de semence de fonio d’arachide des petits matériels et des intrants agricoles, au grand marché de SAN. 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 SAN 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 13000 à 18000FCFA 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.
