The ten members of the Djiguisseme I group are married women. On average, they are 41 years old and have five children. They all live in traditional families in Kampogosso, one of the villages in Kimparana in the San cercle (in the 4th administrative region of Mali).

They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to maintain their farming activities over the rainy season.

This is their fifth loan with the institution and all their previous loans have been repaid in full.

Kariya (the group leader), pictured standing on the far left, grows groundnuts. She will use her loan to buy farm inputs, seed and minor agricultural equipment, as well as pay the labour costs to maintain 1.5 hectares.

After harvest, the produce is sold in the village and in Kimparana, to both men and women customers.

Kariya is hoping to make 45 000 CFA francs by the end of the campaign. This money will help her to pay off the loan and help her husband with day-to-day expenses.

NB: Makariya is absent from the photo due to a foot injury.

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.
