Most of the six women who compose the Badeya group are married in nuclear families.

They know each other through neighborhood and family ties, and also through their professional activities.

They dye fabrics and sell dyed fabrics; they also sell shoes, wax fabrics and food products, and make and sell incense, like Safiatou, standing in the center of the photo and the leader of the group.

In order to increase their businesses, the members of the group have joined Soro Yiriwaso and this is their 14th solidarity loan cycle.

Safiatou is planning to use her loan to buy 20 kg of gueni (a fragrant root used to make incense) and ten boxes of perfumes.

She buys her supplies locally from wholesalers in Sikasso, and she sells from home to a customer base which is made up of men and women.

Safiatou is expecting average monthly profits to reach 80,000 CFA francs, which will be reinvested in her business and also used to buy the condiments that her family 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.
