Mougnou Group
In this Group: Assan , Matou , Chian , Maimouna
Married and mostly living in monogamous families, on average 31 years old with 3 children, the four women of the group Mougnou all live in the Bagadadji de Ségou neighborhood (4th administrative region of Mali). They met through family and neighborhood ties. They sell condiments (boxes of tomato concentrate, onion, garlic, fresh tomatoes, groundnut paste...), clothing for children, "wax pagnes" (colorful African fabric) and "bazin" cloth.

With the goal of getting fresh supplies for cash, the members of the group joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 12th loan in solidarity. Madam Assan (the first woman to the extreme left in the photo) is a great seller of all kinds of clothing in the Bagadadji Ségou neighborhood. She plans to use her loan to buy 50 outfits for children at the great market of Ségou.

With this loan, Madam Assan hopes to make an average monthly profit of 65,000 FCFA which will be reinvested in her business and used to ensure the healthcare and schooling of her children. Like the other women in the group, she has the ambition to breed little ruminants in this partnership with Soro Yiriwaso.

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.
