In this Group: Djénébou , Sanata , Tenin Kadia , Adam
All married and in nuclear families, the four women of the group Djiguitougou are on average 34 years old and have 2 children. They all live in the Bagadadji neighborhood in the town of Ségou and met through neighborhood ties and their income-generating businesses at the Bagadadji market in Ségou. They buy and sell cakes, cosmetic products (perfumes, skin and lip creams), bed sheets, children's clothing, wax and embroidered pagnes [colorful African fabric]. Concerned with increasing their businesses, the members of the group decided to join the loan program of Soro Yiriwaso with which they are on their 7th solidarity group loan cycle.

Djénébou (the woman in the 1st position in the photo from left to right) is a great seller of clothing of all kinds. She plans to use her loan to buy 15 pieces of pagnes (colorful African wax cloth) at the large market in Ségou. She carries out her sales retail for cash and credit to a clientèle made up primarily of women, from home and as an itinerant saleswoman. With this loan, Djénébou hopes to make an average monthly profit of 35,000 FCFA which will be reinvested in her business and used to take care of certain needs of the 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.
