The four women in the Tileneya group, who are all married, average 28 years of age with three children. They live in monogamous families in Ouayerma 1, one of the districts of the town of Sikasso (third administrative region of Mali).

They are on their fifth loan from the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, with the goal of satisfying their customers' needs. The previous loans have all been repaid in full.

They have various activities, which include the sale of fruit and vegetables, fish, firewood, charcoal and wood, and condiments; Kadi B. sells the latter. With her new loan she is planning to buy five baskets of cabbages, three sacks of "jakatou" (a vegetable belonging to the eggplant family), five baskets of fresh tomatoes, ten sacks of onions and five sacks of spices. She gets her supplies at the large market in Sikasso and in neighboring towns. The products are sold at the market and within the family or on order, to a customer base made up essentially of women, and mainly for cash. She is expecting to make an average monthly profit of 35,000FCFA, of which part will be invested in the business and part saved. Her ambition is to buy a piece of land to live on.

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.
