They are collaborating with the microfinance institution, SoroYiriwaso, in order to be able to carry on their farming activities during the winter season. They are on their second loan from the institution and the previous loan was repaid in full.

Kadia, who is standing in the middle of the photo, farms sorghum. With her loan she is planning to buy agricultural inputs and seeds for 1.5 hectars of land. Once harvested, the crop is sold in the village and at Sikasso's market to a customer base made up of men and women.

She is expecting to make an average profit of 180,000FCFA per season. This profit will enable her to repay her loan and also to help out her husband with the 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.
