The ten members of the Noupagagnon IV group are all married women who are on average 36 years old with three children. They mostly live in polygamous families in Tamba, one of the villages in the Nantien commune in the Sikasso municipality, the third largest region in the Republic of Mali. They are working with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance collective in order to boost their agricultural activities during the off-season.
They are on their fifth loan with the organisation, and all previous loans have been repaid.
The women, led by Nadiara (the second person kneeling on the left in the photo) cultivate peanuts and sweet peas. With this loan, she aims to pay for labour costs, and to purchase fertilisers etc and seeds for a 0.5 hectare plot of land.
After harvesting, the crops are sold in the village and at the Sikasso market to a customer base made up of men and women. Nadiara aims to generate an average monthly profit of 12,500 FCFA.
This profit will enable her to repay her loan as well as supporting her husband with the family's everyday needs. She wishes to maintain this relationship with Soro Yiriwaso so that she can make the most of her plot of land, and generate greater profits from it.

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.
