The solidarity group Sope Mame Diarra was created on December 30 2009. It is made up of 31 women, all married. They have an average age of 45, and are the mothers of at least 3 children. They all come from the same village and have come together as friends and neighbors.

With the goal of increasing their purchasing power, the women decided to join the Caurie Micro Finance institution. This is their second time working with Caurie and all their previous loans have been properly repaid.

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.
