Badenya Group
In this Group: Kadiatou, Youma , Ami , Adjara , Mamou , Chata , Minata , Assetou
The eight members of the Badenya group are all married women, on the average 41 years old, with three children. They live in polygamous families in Mamassoni, a district in the town of Sikasso, in the third administrative district of Mali.

This is their 7th experience with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso. The loan is needed to respond to their customers’ needs; all previous loans have been duly repaid. This group of women is mainly engaged in selling food products, such as cucumbers, potatoes, smoked fish and, as in Youma K.'s case, oranges. Youma K. plans to use her loan to purchase 50 bags of oranges. She buys oranges at the big market of the Medine district of Sikasso as well as from growers in the nearby villages. She sells at the big market of Sikasso and from her home to a customer base composed of men and women, for cash.

She plans to achieve a monthly income of 25,500 West African Francs, a part of which will be used to help her husband provide for the everyday family needs and the rest reinvested in her business.

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.
