Mostly married in extended traditional families, the four women of the DJANTOYERELA group are on average 43 years old with 4 children. They all live in YANGASSO in the Segou region (4th administrative region of Mali) and met through living in the same neighbourhood, through business contacts and family ties. They buy and sell various products and they do gardening.
Aiming to satisfy the needs of their expanding and demanding clientele, the members of the group decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso credit programme and having repaid the two previous loans correctly, they are on their 3rd loan.
Awani (1st woman standing on the right in the photo) is extremely good at selling certain products. She is greatly in demand in the town of YANGASSO.
She intends to use her loan to purchase a large quantity of varying merchandise (peanuts, calabashes, tea and sugar). She buys her stock on Mondays at the market in San and in Bla. She sells retail for cash and for credit to a mixed clientele.
With this loan, Awani hopes to make an average monthly profit of 5000 FCFA which will be used for reinvestment in her business and to assist her husband with the household expenses.

This is a Group Loan

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.
