In this Group: Awa , Kadiatou, Nana , Rokia , Dialia , Mariam
The JIGUIYA group comprises six married women who, on average, are 39 years old and have five children each. Most of these women live in monogamous families in SANOUBOUGOU II, one of the working-class neighborhoods of the city of Sikasso (third administrative region of Mali).

Eager to satisfy the needs of their customers, they are taking their sixth loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso.

Mariam, one of the group members, prepares and sells meals. In the photo, she is in the standing row, second from the left.

With her loan, she is planning to buy two bags of "atiéké" (a dish made made from fermented cassava pulp) to be prepared and one box of fresh fish to be fried. She sells her meals to a retail group of customers, from her home and at the market of Sanoubougou II to a varied clientele.

She is expecting average monthly profits to reach 30,000 CFA francs, part of which will be used to repay her loan and the interest, while the rest will be saved.

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.
