* not pictured
The members of this group are married women who, on average, are 38 years old and have four children each. They all live in polygamous families in Tiewarala, 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 fifth loan with the institution and have duly repaid their previous loans.

The featured borrower, Djenebou, grows groundnuts. In the photo, she is in the middle of the standing row. She plans to use her loan to buy agricultural inputs and seeds to cultivate one hectare (2.47 acres) of land.

After the harvest, she sells her crop in her village and at the Sikasso market, to a customer base which consists of men and women.

She is expecting to make a profit of 100,000 CFA francs per growing season. This profit will allow her to repay her loan and to help her husband cover the daily expenses.

Naminata and Sanata were not present when the photo was taken, which is the reason why they are not pictured with the group.

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.
