The group’s members buy and sell high-grade “pagnes” (traditional wrap-around cloth), fruits, vegetables, artisan products and firewood. To increase their working capital they have decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso, and this is their first group loan.
Bâh (the woman seated on the left in the photo) is a successful seller of artisan products in Bagadadji. She plans to use her loan to buy 100 pottery containers and 50 colanders from the blacksmiths in the village of Togo. She will resell her goods on a cash and credit basis from home and at Bagadadji market in Ségou, and her customers are mainly female.
With this loan Bâh hopes to make an average monthly profit of 20,000 francs CFA. She will use this money to reinvest in her business and provide for her children, and aims to have a wholesale business with the help of Soro Yiriwaso.

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.
