The 4 women of the Badenya group are all married and live in monogamous families. They have an average age of 46 and, on average, 3 children. They all live in the village of Togo in the Ségou region (4th administrative region of Mali) and got to know each other through neighbourly and family relationships, and marriage. They sell cereals, charcoal and firewood. The group members decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their business, and are on their 9th group loan cycle.

Chata (standing 2nd from the right in the photo) is a larger reseller of charcoal and firewood in the village of Togo. She plans to use her loan to buy 60 bags of charcoal from the farmers in the village and the surrounding area of Ségou. The sales are made for cash or credit door-to-door and on the streets in the districts of Ségou, to a clientèle made up of men and women. Chata hopes to make an average monthly profit of 30 000 francs thanks to this loan, which will be reinvested in her business and used to ensure that the children in the household get an education. Her aim is to increase her sales volume whilst working in 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.
