The ten members of "Siguitemogosson IV" are married women averaging 39 years of age and three children each, all living in traditional families in Tionsso, a village in Koutiala (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to carry out their farm work during the rainy season. They are on their fourth loan with the institution. The past loans were indeed paid back.

The crop grown is rice, as is the case with Djeneba Samba, who is crouching with a basket [woven from rice stalks] in the photo. With her loan, she intends to purchase farm inputs, seeds, and sundry equipment and to pay for plowing to maintain 1 hectare.

After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village and in Koutiala to men and women customers. She plans on making a profit of 70,000 francs CFA at the end of the season. This profit will enable her to pay back her loan and also to help her husband to cover day-to-day 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.
