In this Group: Massaran , Salimata, Mayama , Fanta
Kantiguiya is a group from the Danaya association in N’tentou. It comprises 4 married women who know one another through family links and the neighbourhood. They are 25 years old and have 3 children each on average; they have different business activities such as the sale of condiments, or of clothing as is the case with Massaran - who is the person on the far left of the photo.
They live in large traditional families in N’tentou (the Koulikoro region, Republic of Mali). They have been small traders for several years, and are in high demand for their services.
In order to satisfy the growing need of their customers, the group members decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan programme one year ago. They are on their second mutual loan. Massaran is skilled at selling clothing. She intends to use her loan to purchase 20 traditional outfits of different types. She buys her stock in Bamako and sells the products in Ouelessebougou, retail, for cash and credit to both men and women.
She hopes to make a monthly profit of 25,000FCFA - enough to allow her to repay the loan and to invest in her business.

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.
