All married and living in traditional extended households, the nine women of the "Dienwari" group are on average 46 years old with seven children. They all live in the town of Kimparana in the Ségou region (the fourth administrative region of Mali) and know each other through neighbourhood and family links. They run businesses buying and selling cereals, milk, and condiments.
With the goal of expanding their business, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their second solidarity (group) loan.
Ms. Fatoumata (standing in the center in the photo) is a major seller of condiments in the Heremakono area and its surroundings.
She intends to use her loan to buy five bags of fresh onions, three cartons of Maggie cubes, two 25-kg bags of salt, and 15 kg of pepper at the market fair in San. She makes her sales at home and in her area, at retail in cash and sometimes on credit to a clientele composed mainly of women.
With this loan, Ms. Fatoumata hopes to realize an average monthly profit of 19,500 FCFA, which will be used to reinvest in her business and take care of the household expenses.

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.
