In this Group: Rokia , Oumou , Awa , Awa
The four women in the Nyètaa Sabati group are all married in polygamous families. They have an average age of 36 and 3 children per woman. They live in the village of M’Pêbougou (in the rural district of Markala) on the Ségou circle (the 4th administrative region of Mali) and they know each other through neighbourhood, marriage and family links.
The group members are traders of milk and peanuts. With the goal of increasing their working capital, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 4th consecutive group loan. Oumou (the first woman standing in the photo - from left to right) has a good reputation in peanut sales in and around M’Pêbougou. She intends to use her loan to purchase 5 bags of peanuts. She buys her stock from the market stalls of Niono and Seribala at the Markala fair. They are sold for cash and credit door-to-door to a customer base composed mainly of women.
Oumou hopes to generate an average monthly profit of 35,000 FCFA which will both be re-invested in the business and used to ensure the upkeep of the children of the household.

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.
