The ten members of the group JEKABARA I are married women, and they average 29 years of age and four children each living for the most part in polygamous families in ZANGABOUGOU, a village in the Commune of LOULOUNI, in the sub-prefecture of LOULOUN (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women are collaborating with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to carry out their farm work during the winter. They are on their fourth loan with this institution. The past loans have been properly repaid.

The crops grown are: sweet peas and peanuts, as is the case with MAWA. With her loan she intends to buy some farm supplies and the seeds for maintaining 1.5 hectares. The produce is sold in villagea, at the DALLEN village market and at the LOULOUNI market. The customer base is comprised of women and men.

MAWA plans on making an average profit of 62,500 francs CFA per planting. This profit will enable her to repay her loan and also to help her husband with day-to-day expenses.  She would like to maintain this collaborating with Soro Yiriwaso to make use of a larger arable plot, so as to derive more.

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.
