They are working with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 2nd loan from the institution. The previous loan has been correctly repaid.

Diatou, standing second from the right in the picture, grows groundnuts. 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 in the village and in Kolondieba to a clientèle made up of men and women. She expects to make a profit of 85 500 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.
