In this Group: Fatoumata , Safoura , Nene , Tata
There are four members of the Danaya group. Most of them are married, their average age is 33 and they have 4 children on average. The majority live in monogamous families in Médine, one of the working-class neighbourhoods of Sikasso, which is the third-largest administrative region of Mali.

This is the group's third loan with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution, and has been requested to help them satisfy their customer's needs. The previous loans have been repaid in full.

Fatoumata, pictured on the right, sells wax and real pagnes (traditional printed cloth) as part of this group. With her loan, she would like to buy 10 pieces of wax and real pagnes wholesale. She buys her products at the Sikasso city market or at Bamako. She then resells the cloth on foot in the neighbourhoods of Sikasso city and to her family. Her customers are men and women, and often buy on credit. She is aiming to earn 35,250 FCFA per month, part of which will go towards paying off her loan, and part of which she will save.

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.
