They met through their rainy season agricultural activities as well as due to being neighbors, linked by marriage and kinship ties in their village. They grow peanuts, millet and rice. In order to buy themselves small equipment and stock up on farm inputs, the members of the group joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their third agricultural loan.

Mme Mayama, the first woman standing left to right in the photo, is a busy rainy-season farmer in the village of Sirakorobougou. She intends to use her loan to plow her field, buy seed and fertilizer, and pay young people to weed her field.

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.
