The five members of the Danaya group (one married woman and four widows) average 45 years of age and have on average three children each. The majority of them live in monogamous families in Medine, one of the districts of the town of Sikasso (Mali's third administrative region).

They are on their seventh loan from the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, with the goal of satisfying customer demand. This group of women sell "pagnes", which are highly decorative pieces of fabric (this is the case for Bintou D.), oranges, soaps and charcoal.

With her loan Bintou D. is planning to buy 30 pieces of "pagne" fabric. She gets her supplies at Sikasso's large market and in Bamako. She sells her "pagnes" for cash at Sikasso's large market and within the family, to a customer base made up of men and women.

She is expecting to make an average monthly profit of 75,000FCFA, of which part will be used for the family's daily expenses and the rest invested 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.
