The eight women who compose the DANAYA group are all married in extended traditional families. They are, on average, 38 years old and have four children each. They all live in the village of Cinzara, in the Segou region (fourth administrative region of Mali), and they know each other through neighborhood, marriage or family ties. They are essentially involved in buying and selling milk in its different forms, and also fabrics.

In order to boost their businesses, the members of the group have joined Soro Yiriwaso, and this is their second solidarity loan.

Aya (first from the right in the front row) is planning to use her loan to buy 10 pieces of "Fancy print" pagnes (African printed wax cloth) from shopkeepers in the town of San. She sells for cash or on credit to a retail group of customers consisting of men and women. She sells her goods in Cinzara and other markets.

Aya is expecting average monthly profits to reach 40,000 CFA francs. She will use her profits to reinvest in her activity and to meet the needs of her family.

Toutes mariées dans des familles traditionnelles élargies, les huit femmes du groupe DANAYA ont en moyenne 38 ans et 4 enfants. Elles habitent toutes le village de Cinzara dans la région de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des liens de voisinage, de mariage et de parenté. Elles font essentiellement l’achat et la vente de laits sous toutes ses formes et des tissus.
Dans le but d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce, les membres du groupe ont intégré Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 2ème prêt solidaire.
Madame Aya (1ère assise de la droite vers la gauche) compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter 10 pièces de pagnes fancy auprès des boutiquiers de San. Elle vend au comptant, en détail et à crédit à une clientèle composée d’hommes et de femmes à Cinzara et dans d’autres foires.
Avec ce prêt, Madame Aya espère réaliser un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 40.000 FCFA qui sera utilisé pour être réinvesti dans l’activité et prendre en charge des besoins du foyer.

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.
