The members of the Fotemogoban I group are married women who, on average, are 39 years old and have three children. They all live in polygamous families in Kapala, one of the villages in Sikasso, the third administrative region of Mali.

They are collaborating with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to better carry out their farming during the rainy season. They are on their second loan with the institution, and their previous loan was paid back correctly.

Maminata, seated second from the left in the photo, grows sweet peas. With her loan, she plans to buy farm inputs and seeds to maintain one hectare of land.

After the harvest, the crops are sold in the village and in Sikasso to men and women customers.

Maminata hopes to earn 75,000 francs CFA per harvest. These earnings will allow her to pay back her loan and also to help her husband in the everyday 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.
