BENDIYA is a group which is part of the DANAYA association of Ouelessebougou. It comprises four married women who know one another through family and neighborhood ties. These women have an average age of 45 and an average of five children each. They are involved in various activities: Kadiatou, for example, buys and sells condiments. (In the photo, Kadiatou is the only woman sitting in a chair). These four women live in large traditional families in Ouelessebougou, in the cercle of Kati (Koulikoro Region, Republic of Mali).

The members of the group have been involved in small retail activities for several years and their products are in high demand. Eager to meet the increasing needs of their customers, they have decided to join the loan program offered by Soro Yiriwaso. This is their first solidarity loan.

Kadiatou, the group's leader, is quite well-known in Ouelessebougou. She excels in the sale of condiments. She will use her loan to buy one bag of groundnut paste, one bag of onions and one package of pepper. She buys her goods from local wholesalers or in Bamako. She resells her products in Ouelessebougou, for cash or on credit, to a retail customer base consisting of men and women.

Kadiatou hopes to make a monthly profit of 30,000 CFA francs, which will help her to repay her loan and to reinvest in her business.

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.
