The members decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's credit program in order to increase the size of their businesses. They are on their second group loan.

Bébé, a member of Djekafo, is the first person sitting on the left of the picture and sells various items: clothing, children's toys, shoes, etc. She plans to use her loan to buy 5 sets of clothes and a dozen fashionable children's toys. She gets these products at the Koutiala market. She resells the items to a diverse retail clientèle for cash, from her home and at the market. Bébé expects to make a profit of 150 000 francs from this round of sales.

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.
