The group Belle Dame is composed exclusively of married women who average 30 years of age and two children each, all living in traditional extended families in the village of Tomba, in Commune de Wacoro, Prefecture de Dioïla, Région de Koulikoro (2nd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women know one another through ties of kinship, community, and friendship. They do commerce in clothing, condiments, and grains. The women of the group are on their third solidarity loan.

This client, AÏCHA, the second person from the right in the photo, intends to purchase some percale fabrics from the retailers of Nangola. She knits them to make bed sheets and 'califourchons' for sale locally in the village.

She envisions making an average monthly profit of 5,000 francs CFA that will be used to meet family needs. Part of the profits will be reinvested in the clothing 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.
