The DANAYA group is comprised of married women whose average age is 32 and who have an average of 3 children. They live in traditional families in Massablacoura, one of the neighborhoods in the city of Bougouni (3rd administrative region of Mali).

This is the sixth collaboration with microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso that the group has used to satisfy their customers.

This group of women sells cups through Maimouna as well as fabric and various goods. Maimouna, the one holding a child in the photo, would like to use her loan to buy 10 dozen glasses. She buys her products from wholesalers and then sells at home and at the market, to male and female customers, and for cash and credit.

She would like to reach an average monthly profit of 30,000 FCFA - part of which will be used to help her husband with daily expenses, and part of which will be reinvested in her business.

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.
