With a view to expanding their businesses, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their first group loan cycle.
Aminata (the woman sitting on the far right of the photo) is a significant vegetable seller at Kalaban Coro. She plans to use her loan to buy 11 baskets of tomatoes, six sacks of round cabbages, a basket of parsley and celery. She gets her supplies in Bamako from stallholders in various places. She resells for cash at Kalaban Coro to a customer base made up essentially of women.

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.
