Koto Allama is a group of women from the Koko area in Koutiala, who live in large traditional families with their husbands, children, and other relatives. Their average age is 55 years, they are married, and have an average of five children each.
This group of women does business in various items such as pagnes (colorful wax cloth), seasoning, beignets, soaps, etc.
To increase the size of their businesses, the members decided to join the loan program at Soro Yiriwaso. They are on their tenth group loan.
Kadiatou is a member of the Koto Allama group. She is the first person seated on the left and sells seasonings.
She counts on using her loan to buy bags of fakouhoye leaves, near the end of winter when it is less expensive. She gets her products at the Koutiala market and in the villages. She sells her fakouhoye leaves in bulk and retail, for cash at home and at the market, to a mainly female customer base.
Although the other members of the Koto Allama group count on making an average profit of 105,500 XOF each in the course of the loan cycle, Kadiatou counts on making 145,000 XOF.
In addition to repaying their loans, they will use a portion of the revenue to pay for their personal expenses and increase their working capital. They wish to reinforce their partnership with Soro Yiriwaso so that their stock does not become limited.

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.
