In this Group: Ramatou, Mariam , Aminata , Korotoumou , Minian, Naminata , Bintou , Rokia , Djama , Fanta
The 10 members of the Walegnoumadon group are all married women who are on the average 43 years of age and have three children. They all live in nuclear families in Lobougoula, a village in the third administrative district of Mali (Sikasso). They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to better manage their agricultural activities during the winter season.

They are on their sixth agricultural cycle campaign with our institution; all their prior loans have been duly repaid. They cultivate sweet peas, as, for example, Fanta does. She is the first one standing on the right on the photo. With this loan, she plans to buy agricultural inputs [fertilizers etc] and pay for labor to work 1 ha [2.5 acres] of land. After harvesting her produce, she sells it in the village, to a customer base composed of both men and women. She plans to achieve an average revenue of 250,000 West African francs per agricultural cycle. These revenues will allow her to pay off her loan and also to help her husband provide for everyday expenses.

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.
