The seven members of the group DANAYA are essentially married women who average 42 years of age and three children each living for the most part in polygamous families in HAMDALLAYE, a working-class district in Sikasso City.

The women are on their 15th loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to satisfy customer need. The previous loans were correctly paid back.

IVONE, at the far right in the photo, is the one who dyes cloth in this group. She intends to use her loan to purchase lengths of damask cloth, dyes, thread, and caustic soda. She gets her supplies from the big market in Sikasso City.

She resells her dyed damasks by special order and provides such services at her home (Hamdallaye, a working-class district in Sikasso City). Her customer base is composed of men and women.

She envisions making an average monthly profit of 30,000 francs CFA. Part of the profits is used to repay the loan with interest, and the other part is for savings.

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.
