The seven members of the ALAHOU group (6 married women and 1 single woman) are on average 35 years old with 2 children. Most live in monogamous families at Sanoubougou I, a district of the city of Sikasso (third administrative region of Mali). This is their second loan from the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to satisfy their customers’ needs. The first loan has been fully repaid. This group of women sell various items such as onions and sell shoes and fabrics with Aminata C., the group's president. Aminata C. plans to buy 12 boxes of shoes and 20 pagnes (a colorful West African cloth) with her loan. She gets her supplies at the large market and sells them on a cash basis in town and from her home to a clientele composed of men and women. She hopes to make an average monthly profit of 40,000 CFA of which a part will be used to help her husband provide for the family's needs and the remainder will be invested in the 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.
