Married for the most part in polygamous families, the ten women of the group Nissondiya average 41 years of age and three children each. The women all live in the village of Fabougou, in Région de Ségou (4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know one another through ties of community and kinship. They buy and sell charcoal, grains, peanuts, tea, sugar, and fruit & vegetables.

With the goal of increasing their business capital, the group decided to collaborate with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their first solidarity loan cycle.

Ms. Salimata (the woman seated first from the right in the photo) is a major vendor of peanuts in the village. She intends to use her loan to purchase a sack of peanuts at the Konodimini fair. Sales are made in cash or on credit to a customer base composed mostly of women.

Ms. Salimata hopes to make an average monthly profit of 5,000 francs CFA with this loan. It will be used for reinvesting in the business and ensuring her home is kept supplied with ingredients for cooking.

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.
