All married in extended traditional families, the women who compose the TIESSIRI group average 40 years of age and 5 children each. They all live in the town of Yangasso, in the Segou region (fourth administrative region of Mali), and they know each other through family and neighborhood ties. They buy and sell calabash and other goods.

In order to increase their business, the members of the group have joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their seventh solidarity loan.

Minata (second from the right in the photo) is planning to use her loan to buy four boxes of calabash, each box containing 70 calabash gourds to be sold in a month. Minata buys her goods at the large market of Bla. She sells for retail and cash at the Yangasso market, and, on ordinary days, from her home. Her customer base mostly consists of women.

With this loan, Minata is expecting average monthly profits to reach 18,000 CFA francs, which will be reinvested in her business and also used to take care of some household needs.

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.
