The ten members of the NOUPAGAGNON III group are married women who are on average 38 years old and have four children each. Most of them live in polygamous families in Tamba, a village in the municipality of NANTIEN, in the prefecture of Sikasso, the third administrative region of Mali.

They have partnered with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their fifth loan with the MFI, and all previous loans were correctly repaid.

They grow groundnuts and sweet peas. MARIAM, standing in the photo second from the left, will use her loan to buy inputs and seeds, and to pay for the plowing of about 0.5 hectare.

After harvest, the crops are sold in the village and at the Sikasso market to a clientele composed of both men and women. Mariam expects to earn on average 35,000 FCFA per season.

This revenue will allow her to repay her loan and to help her husband with the daily expenses. She hopes to maintain this partnership with Soro Yiriwaso in order to make the most of her farming land and bolster her profits.

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.
