The five members of the group FARAFINA LOLO are married women, who average 38 years of age and four children each. The women live in monogamous families in QUARTIER BABEMBA, a working-class district in Sikasso City (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They are on their third loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso out of concern for satisfying the needs of their customers.

Ms. KADIA does commerce in condiments in this group of women. She is the one standing second from the left in the photo. She intends to use her loan to purchase about 20 kg of smoked fish and a box of Cube Magi that she sells retail locally and at the Medine market.

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.
