Most of them live in monogamous families in Kadiolo (Noumousso), one of the districts of Sikasso (third-largest administrative division of Mali). They are on their eleventh loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and have duly repaid all their previous loans.

Korotoumou, the featured borrower, has been preparing meals for about seven years. In the photo, she is standing in the middle of the group. She is well-known in her field and receives many orders.

She buys her supplies (grains and condiments) in the town of Kadiolo and also often stocks up in the surrounding villages. She owns a very small restaurant in the town of Kadiolo and serves meals to both men and women. She sells her meals for cash and on a retail basis in her small restaurant and also from home.

She is expecting to make an average monthly profit of 45,000 CFA francs, part of which will be used to repay her loan and the interest while the rest will be saved.

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.
