Jolie Group
In this Group: Assitan , Assitan , Mariam , Fanta , Tata
The five women of the Jolie group are all married and live in polygamous families. They have an average age of 37, three children, live in the Darsalam of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali) and know each other through community and kinship ties and their revenue-generating businesses at the Médine Ségou market. The members of the group buy and sell used clothing, children's clothing, cosmetic products (incense), handbags and jewelry (necklaces). With the goal of building up their sales stock, the members of the group decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 5th solidarity loan. Madame Mariam (1st woman on the left of the photo) has a great reputation for selling used clothing in the Darsalam Ségou neighborhood. She plans to use her loan to buy two bales of used clothing at Segou’s Grand Market. She sells them for cash or credit at the Médine market and by walking from place to place in Ségou to a clientele consisting mainly of women. With this loan, Madame Mariam hopes to earn an average monthly profit of 26,000 CFA that will be used to provide for the basic needs of the family — food and school expenses. Her goal is to reinvest her savings in her business in order to become a wholesaler in her trade.

Mariées toutes dans des familles polygamiques, les cinq femmes du groupe Jolie ont une moyenne d’âge de 37 ans, 3 enfants, habitent le quartier Darsalam de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des liens de voisinage, de parenté et de leurs activités génératrices de revenu au marché de Médine Ségou.
Les membres du groupe font l’achat et la vente d’habits de la friperie, d’habits pour enfants, produits cosmétiques (encens), sacs à mains et parures (colliers).
Dans le but de constituer leurs stocks de vente, les membres du groupe ont décidé de collaborer avec Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 5ème prêt solidaire.
Madame Mariam (1ère femme de la gauche vers la droite sur la photo) a une grande réputation dans la vente d’habits de la friperie dans le quartier Darsalam Ségou.
Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter deux ballons d’habits de la friperie au grand marché de Ségou. La revente se fait au comptant et à crédit à domicile, au marché Médine et en ambulant dans la ville de Ségou à une clientèle composée majoritairement de femmes.
Madame Mariam espère réaliser avec ce prêt un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 26 000FCFA qui sera utilisé pour subvenir aux petits besoins du foyer en nourriture et frais de scolarisation. Elle a pour objectif de réinvestir l’épargne dans l’activité afin de devenir grossiste dans son petit commerce.

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.
