Mogoyankan Group
In this Group: Mamou , Minata , Mariam , Diarata, Ramatou
The Mogoyankan group is made up of 5 married women who live in traditional, nuclear families and have an average age of 29 and, on average, 4 children. They all live in the town of Kolondieba (the prefecture of the 3rd administrative region of Mali) and got to know each other thanks to family and neighbourly relationships, and marriage. The group members are small retailers and sell pottery containers used for transporting water. They have joined Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their business and are on their 5th group loan cycle.

Ramatou (in the middle of the picture) is one of the group members who sells pots. She plans to use her loan to produce some pots (including spending money on the transportation of the clay, bundles of sticks and labour wages). She gets her supplies from the riverbank and makes her sales for cash or credit, door-to-door and at the market, to a retail clientèle made up of men and women. Thanks to this loan, Ramatou expects to make an average monthly profit of 10 500 francs which will be reinvested in her business and used to support her husband with some of the family 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.
