Predominantly married in monogamous families, the five women in the Djekafo group are on average 38 years old and have three children. They live in the village of Were (rural municipality of Markala) in the Segou district (fourth administrative region of Mali), and became acquainted through neighborhood ties, kinship and their income-generating activities at the Markala market fair.

Group members are retail traders of all types of milk (curdled milk, fresh milk, yogurt and cream). To increase their working capital, the group joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their sixth loan cycle.

Mrs. Maman (the second woman standing from right to left in the picture) is a large seller of all types of milk (sour milk, fresh cream and yogurt) in the village of M'Pebougou and its surrounding area.

She plans to use her loan to buy 250 liters of milk from local farmers. Resale is made for cash and on credit, at home and as an itinerant vendor throughout Markala neighborhoods, to a clientèle composed of men, women and children.

Mrs. Maman expects this loan will enable her to achieve an average monthly profit of 30,000 FCFA, to be reinvested in the business and to provide schooling for her children.

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.
