Djiguisseme A Group
In this Group: Lassina , Sidi , Moussa, Koungotigui , Souleymane
The five members of the Djiguissème A group are married men. On average, they are 37 years old and have five children. They all live in traditional families in Foh, one of the villages in Sikasso (the 3rd administrative region of Mali).

They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to maintain their farming activities over the rainy season and this is their sixth loan with the institution. All their previous loans have been repaid in full.

The crop they cultivate is maize. Lassina, pictured standing in the middle, intends to use his loan to buy farm inputs and seeds, and pay the labour costs to maintain 2 hectares. After harvest, the produce is sold in the village and at the market in Sikasso to both men and women customers.

Lassina is hoping to make an average of 300,000 CFA francs per campaign. This money will help him pay off the loan and support his large family with day-to-day expenses.

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.
