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

Titoudo grows rice, and is the first person standing from left to right in the photo. With her loan, she intends to buy inputs and pay for labor to cultivate 1 hectare (approximately 2.5 acres). After harvest, the crop is sold at village level and at the Sikasso market, to both men and women customers.

She expects to make an average profit of 140,000 FCFA per crop. The profits will enable her to pay off her loan and also to help her husband 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.
