The BENKADI group consists of 6 married women who average 34 years of age and six children. They live in extended traditional families with their husbands, other wives, brothers and sons in the village of Sido.

They know one another as neighbors and friends, and through their commercial activities. To strengthen their working capital and improve their activities, they joined the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso, with which they have reached their third loan cycle. Both past loans were repaid correctly.

These women sell soft drinks. DJOBA, for instance, is shown in the photo with a case of a dozen soft drinks on her lap. She plans to use her loan to buy 20 cases of soft drinks from wholesalers in Bamako. She sells at retail to a mixed clientele, from her home and at the market, accepting cash and credit.

She expects to earn an average monthly profit of 30,000FCFA, which she will use to repay the loan and reinvest in her activity.

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.
