The five members of the Gnongondeme Ton I group are married men, who average 50 years of age with seven children each and who all live in traditional families in Koumbri, one of the villages in Koutiala, Mali's third administrative region.

They are collaborating with the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, with the aim of carrying out their farming activities successfully during the winter season. They are on their fifth loan with the institution and the previous loans have all been repaid in full.

Yaya, who is standing second from the right in the photo, grows corn. With his loan he is planning to buy fertilizers, seeds and small farming materials, as well as to pay labor costs to maintain 1.5 hectares of land.

Once harvested, the produce will be sold in the village and in Koutiala to a customer base made up of men and women.

Yaya expects to make an average 200,000FCFA profit at the end of the season. This profit will enable him to repay his loan and also help out with 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.
