They are working with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 8th loan from the institution. The previous loans have been properly repaid.

Kiatou, standing on the left in the picture, grows millet. She plans to use her loan to buy agricultural inputs and seeds, and to pay the labourers needed for the cultivation of 1 hectare of farmland. After the harvest, the produce will be sold at the village market to a clientèle made up of resellers and consumers. She expects to have made a profit of 125 000 francs per crop cycle. This profit will enable her to repay her loan and also to help her husband with the daily living expenses.

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.
