The seven members of the Benkadi IV group are married women with an average age of 34 and an average of 3 children. For the most part, they live in polygamous families in Ladjibougou, one of the villages in the Dioïla prefecture, in the Koulikoro region, the second administrative region of Mali.
They are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to better organize their rainy season activities.
They grow rice, pearl millet, peanuts, and beans. They are on their second seasonal loan and have repaid their previous loan in full.
With this new loan, Kadiatou D. plans on buying fertilizer, small farming equipment, and paying for the labor costs involved in maintaining approximately 1 hectare of peanuts.
The harvested goods are sold in Dioïla and Massigui to a client base made up of both men and women.
Kadiatou hopes to make a profit of approximately 20,000 francs CFA by the end of the 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.
