The four members of the Djantoyerela group are married women averaging 41 years of age, with five children. They live in polygamous families in Noumousso, a working-class neighborhood in the town of Kadiolo (the third administrative district of Mali). They are on their seventh loan with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution, with the goal of meeting customer demand. Prior loans have been duly repaid. Sitan, standing on the far right on the photo, is the one who prepares and sells shea butter in this group.

She plans to use her loan to purchase a dozen of 100-kg bags of shea nuts. She stocks up in the villages around the town of Kadiolo, and at the big town market on market days. After preparing shea butter, she sells it at the market and out of her home, to a customer base composed of both men and women, for cash. She plans to achieve an average monthly profit of 37,250 West African Francs, one part of which will be used to pay off the loan with interest, and the other part put away as savings.

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.
