In this Group: Mariam , Monic , Sali, Adiara , Afou , Nassan
The six members of the Fasodeme group are married women who are on average 34 years old with three children. They live mostly in polygamous families in Ouayerma I, one of the working-class neighborhoods of the city of Sikasso.

They are on their first loan with the Soro Yiriwaso micro-finance institution, seeking to meet the needs of their customers.
Adiara, the only woman sitting, is active as a soap trader in the Fasodeme group.

She intends to use the loan to buy a dozen cartons of soap (both beauty and traditional for clothes and dish-washing). She gets her supplies from wholesalers at the general market in Sikasso. She retails them for cash at the Ouayerma market, as an itinerant vendor and from her home to both women and men customers.

She expects average monthly profits to attain 17,500 FCFA, part of which will be used to pay off the loan and interest, and the rest put into savings. She aims to increase her turnover to better satisfy her customers.

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.
