The majority married in monogamous families, the seven women of the Dakan group are on average 36 years old with six children. They live in the Angoulême district of the city of Ségou (fourth administrative region of Mali). They are acquainted through marriage, kinship, and business associations at the Médine market in Ségou. The group's members do business in charcoal, firewood, clothing (new and used), rice, and bread.

In order to pay for supplies in cash, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso; they are on their ninth group loan. The previous loans have been fully repaid.

Madame Fatoumata plans to use her loan to buy two bales of used clothing at the big market in Ségou. She resells door-to-door, as an itinerant vendor, and at a stall in the Médine market; her customers are both male and female, and she sells for cash and credit.

Madame Fatoumata hopes to make an average monthly profit of 29,000 CFA with this loan. This will be reinvested in the business and used for occasional household expenses. Her goal is to open a second-hand clothing shop.

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.
