They all live in the Darsalam area of Ségou and know each other through neighbourhood and familial relations. They run businesses selling galettes, cereals, clothing, and second-hand goods. With the goal of expanding their business, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 13th solidarity (group) loan.
Salimata (second from the right in the photo) is known in Darsalam and at the Médine Ségou market for her cereal sales. She intends to use this loan to buy two bags of rice from the fairgrounds of the Office du Niger agency zone. She resells her goods at retail in cash and on credit to a clientele composed mainly of women. With this loan, Salimata hopes to realize an average monthly profit of 30,000 FCFA, which will be used to reinvest in her business and ensure her health needs.

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.
