The ten members of Benkan VI Group are married women who average 40 years of age and five children. They all live in polygamous families in Falan, a village in Sanankoroba, second administrative region of Mali.

They work with Kiva's partner, the MFI Soro Yiriwaso, in order to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. They are seeking their eighth loan from the MFI. Previous loans were repaid without problems.

Siriba (fourth one from the left in the standing row) is growing peanuts. With her loan she intends to buy farm inputs, seeds, and pay for plowing to maintain 0.5 hectare.

After the harvest, the production is sold at the market in the village, to a clientele comprising resellers and consumers.

She intends to turn a profit of XOF 60'000 (ca US$ 120) per planting. This profit will enable her to repay the loan and also help her husband cover the daily 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.
