The six members of the NOUPAGAGNON 2 group are married men who, on average, are 41 years old and have five children each. They all live in traditional families in Kokouna, one of the villages of the Sikasso region, third administrative region of Mali.

They have joined the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to successfully carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. They are on their fourth loan with the institution and their previous loans have been duly repaid.

The featured borrower, Mamoutou, grows maize. In the photo, he is second from the left in the standing row. He plans to use his loan to buy agricultural inputs and seeds, and to pay for the cost of plowing to cultivate 3 hectares (7.41 acres) of land.

After the harvest, he sells his crop in the village and at the Sikasso market. His customers are both men and women.

Mamoutou is expecting to make an average profit of 500,000 CFA francs per season. This profit will allow him to repay his loan and to contribute to his large family's daily 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.
