In this Group: Rokia , Alimata , Awa Moumouni , Hawa , Mamou , Aminata
The six women in the Sabougnouman group are married and most of them live in monogamous families. On average, they are 35 years old and have three children. They live together in the Hamdallaye neighbourhood in the region of Ségou (the 4th administrative region of Mali) and know each other through being relatives, neighbours and in-laws.

The members of the group sell dyed clothing (high-quality and medium-quality bazin cloth). In order to increase their business funds, the members of the group joined Soro Yiriwaso. This is their 13th solidarity loan cycle.

Rokia (pictured standing third from the right) has a great reputation in the dyed bazin trade. She is hoping to use her loan to buy 20 meters of high-quality bazin and 10 boxes of colours and indigos for dyeing the cloth. She sells dyed bazin for cash and on credit, both from home and as a travelling vendor, to her customers in the local neighbourhood, the majority of whom are women.

Rokia hopes that with this loan she can make an average of 40 000 CFA francs per month, which she will use to reinvest in the business and buy additional food supplies for her household.

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.
