The nine members of the Tiessiri VI group are married women who are on average 41 years old with five children, all living in polygamous families in Tiébiziédougou, one of the villages of Kadiolo, in the third administrative region of Mali.

They work with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution to carry out their agricultural activities during the rainy season. They are on their third loan with the institution, and past loans have been fully repaid.

Chata Karim grows peanuts and is standing in the middle of the picture. With her loan she intends to buy agricultural inputs, seeds and pay for plowing to maintain 2 hectares (approximately 5 acres).

After harvesting the crop is sold at village level and in the Kadiolo market, to a customer base of resellers and consumers.

She expects to achieve an average profit of 170,000 FCFA per crop. The income will allow her to pay off her loan and also to help her husband deal with daily expenses.

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.
