They all live in the Médine neighborhood of the city of Ségou, and met through neighborhood link, family links or throug their income generating activities at the Médine market. They all work in the purchase and sale of grains, food, clothing and dyes.
In order to increase the funds they have available for their activity, the members of this group decided to ask Soro Yiriwaso for a second loan. Fanta (second woman from the left in the photo) is a major re-seller of rice. She plans to use the loan to purchase two bags of rice from the market in Ségou. She sells her merchanise for both cash and credit to a mixed group of men and women. Fanta hopes this loan will allow her to earn a monthly revenue of approximately 20,000 FCFA (~40 USD), which she will reinvest in her activity and use to take care of the needs of her home.

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.
