The five women in the Sabougnouman group are all married and in monogamous families. They are on average 36 years old and have on average 3 children. They all live in the Darsalam neighborhood in the Ségou region (4th administrative region of Mali) and know each other from their businesses at the Médine Ségou market. The group members sell rice, tomatoes, and clothing. In the goal of growing their business, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their tenth group loan. Mrs. Koumba (the first woman standing to the far right in the photo) has a big reputation in selling grains. She plans to use her loan to buy four bags of rice. She resells them for cash or credit from home to a clientele composed of men and women. Mrs. Koumba hopes to make 40,000 FCFA monthly with this loan, which will be used to reinvest into her business. Like the other women in the group, Mrs. Koumba hopes to build a long-term business partnership with Soro Yiriwaso.

Les cinq femmes du groupe Sabougnouman sont toutes mariées dans des familles monogamiques. Elles ont en moyenne 36 ans et 3 enfants. Elles habitent toutes dans le quartier de Darsalam dans la région de Ségou (4ème Région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des activités génératrices de revenu au marché Médine Ségou. Les membres du groupe font le petit commerce du riz, de la tomate et d’habits. Dans le but d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce, les membres du groupe ont décidé de collaborer avec Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 10ème cycle de prêt solidaire.
Madame Koumba (la 1ère femme debout à l’extrême droite sur la photo) a une grande réputation dans la vente des céréales. Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter 4 sacs de riz. La revente se fait au comptant et à crédit à domicile à une clientèle composée d’hommes et de femmes. Madame Koumba espère réaliser un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 40 000 FCFA avec ce prêt, qui sera utilisé, pour être réinvesti dans l’activité. Tout comme les autres femmes du groupe, Madame Koumba a pour objectif de pérenniser ses activités dans ce partenariat avec 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.
