Sabougnouma is a group that is part of the Benkadi association, located in Kangaré. Its four female members all know each other because they are family members or neighbors. They are on average 40 years of age, and are married with at least five children each. They all work in different businesses, including selling clothes, cereals, and agricultural produce. The group’s members all live in large traditional families in Kangaré, located in the sub-prefecture of Selingue (in the Sakasso region of Mali).

These women have worked in small-scale retail for several years, and are all in high demand. In order to meet the growing needs of their customers, they decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso loan program, and are now on their fifth group loan.

Maimouna is pictured first on the left in the photo, and is the president of the group. She is very well-known in Kangaré, and plans to use her loan to buy ten sacks of millet and five sacks of peanuts. She gets her supplies in Dalabala and the surrounding areas, and sells her cereals in Kangaré on a retail basis for cash and on credit. Her customers are both male and female.

Maimouna hopes to make a monthly profit of 40,000 francs CFA, which will allow her to repay her loan and reinvest in her business.

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.
