Married mostly in nuclear families, the four women of the Fasso Kanou group, on average, are 44 years old and have five children. They live in the same area of Bagadadji in the town of Segou and know each other from neighborhood ties and their business activities in the Bagadadji market. They engage in the buying and selling of cereals, condiments, charcoal, firewood, and hibiscus and ginger root juices. In order to increase their business capital, the members of the group decided to join Yoro Yiriwaso's loan program. This is their fourteenth group loan.

Djènèbou (the second woman on the right in the photo) sells all sorts of condiments. She hopes to use her loan to buy 200 kilograms of onions, two sacs of iodized salt and a carton of cans of tomato paste. She makes her sales from her home and in the Bagadadji market, in cash and credit, to customers who are mostly women.

With this loan, Djènèbou hopes to make an average monthly profit of 50,000 francs CFA, which will be used to reinvest in the business and to support some of her household needs.

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.
