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 eighth loan with the institution and the previous loans have been repaid in full.

Djeneba, who is sitting on the far right of the photo, grows groundnut. With her loan, she is planning to buy fertilizers and seeds as well as to pay for labor to farm two hectares of land.

Once harvested, the produce is sold in the village and in Kolondieba to a customer base made up of men and women.

Djeneba is expecting to make a profit of 145,500FCFA per season. This profit will enable her to repay her loan and also to help her husband 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.
