Married and living mostly in polygamous families, the seven women of the Kotankègnè group are, on average, 42 years old and have four children. They all live in the village of N’gara in the Ségou region (in the fourth administrative region of Mali) and know each other as neighbors and through family and marriage ties. They are in the business of selling cereals and fruits. In hopes of increasing their working capital, the members of the group decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 11th joint loan.
Mrs. Sanata (the woman seated to the far left), is a successful fruit and vegetable vendor in the village of N’gara. She plans to use her loan to buy 24 baskets of papayas from sellers in the village and in surrounding areas. She makes her sales for cash and on credit from her home and at the market in Konodimini, as well as traveling around, to a clientele made up of men and women.
Mrs. Sanata hopes to make an average monthly profit of 20,000 FCFA with this loan, which will be used to reinvest in her business and to cover her children’s educational expenses.

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.
