They all live in traditional extended families in Fana City, FANA-COURA district, sub-prefecture of Fana, Region of Koulikoro (2nd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know one another through ties of kinship, community, and friendship. And they do commerce in clothing, beverages made locally, and cosmetics. The group members are on their seventh solidarity loan.

Ms. NAFI SANGARÉ intends to use her loan to buy clothing for children and adults from wholesalers from Fana and often from Bamako. Accepting cash or credit, she makes her sale to a customer base composed of women and men in the city and at the market.

She envisions making an average monthly profit of 40,000 francs CFA that will be used to make the loan payments and to help pay for societal ceremonies. The rest will be 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.
