With the goal of utilizing male labor for carrying out the upkeep work, they turned toward the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their second farm loan cycle. The group members are going to grow peanuts, millet, okra, 'fonio', and black-eyed peas.
Ms. Djènèba (the second woman standing from the right in the photo) intends to use her loan to purchase 2 sacks of fertilizer and to have the plowing and weeding done on her fields. She supplies herself with labor from the association of young people, and as for the farm inputs, from the big market of Ségou.
With a land area of 2 hectares, she hopes to produce 12 sacks of peanuts, 3 sacks of millet, and about 30 basins of okra. The okra and part of the millet and peanuts produced will be sold to manage sundry day-to-day family expenses, while the rest will be consumed by the family.

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.
