In this Group: Fatoumata , Kadiatou , Astan , Nah , Djenebou , Djenebou
The six women in the Tiessiri group are married, for the most part in monogamous families. They average 33 years of age with four children. They all live in the Darsalam neighborhood in the region of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali) and became acquainted through neighborhood ties, kinship and marriage.

Members of the group are small retailers of condiments (onions, cabbage, groundnut paste, ...). To increase their stock supplies, the group decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso and are in their ninth group loan cycle.

Mrs. Nah (the second woman standing from left to right in the photo) has a great reputation in selling all kinds of condiments. She plans to use the loan to buy 300 kilos of shallots and cabbages. She sells for cash and credit, through home delivery to a clientele composed mostly of women.

Mrs. Nah hopes to achieve an average monthly profit of 47,000 FCFA with this loan, which will be invested in the business and ensure her home is supplied with condiments.

Like other women in the group, Ms. Nah aims to sustain her activities through this partnership with Soro Yiriwaso.

Madame Nah espère réaliser un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 47000 FCFA avec ce prêt, qui sera investi dans l’activité et assurer le ravitaillement du foyer en condiments. Tout comme les autres femmes du groupe, Madame Nah a pour objectif de pérenniser leurs 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.
