Djiguiya Group
In this Group: Fatoumata , Koura , Mariam , Mariam , Sali
The five members of the Djiguiya group are married women living mainly in monogamous families. On the average, they are 37 years old, with three children. They all live in the Sabalibougou neighborhood in the Bamako district and know each other as neighbors and relatives as well as through their work as vendors at the Sabalibougou market. The group members sell kitchen utensils, fruits, vegetables, roasted chicken and condiments (pasta, cooked onion and ground pimento). In the goal of bolstering their working capital, the group members have decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their first solidarity loan cycle.

Mrs. Mariam (the one seated in the middle of the photo) is well known for her cooked food in Sabaibougou. She plans to sue her loan to buy 35 chickens at the market. She roasts the chickens and sells them for cash and on credit in front of her house to a customer base composed mainly of men. With this loan, Mariam hopes to earn an average monthly revenue of 35,000 West African francs which will be used to reinvest in her business and provide first necessity items for her household. Mariam’s goal is to be able to buy a plot of land to use for housing thanks to her partnership with Soro Yiriwaso.

Les cinq femmes du groupe Djiguiya sont mariées majoritairement dans des ménages monogamiques avec une moyenne d’âge de 37 ans et 3 enfants. Elles habitent toutes dans le quartier de Sabalibougou dans le district de Bamako et se sont connues à travers des liens de voisinage, de parenté et de leurs activités génératrices de revenu au marché de Sabalibougou. Les membres du groupe font le petit commerce d’ustensiles de cuisine, fruits, légumes, poulets rôtis et des condiments (pâte alimentaire, oignon précuit et de la farine de piment). Dans le but d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce, les membres du groupe ont décidé de collaborer avec Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 1ercycle de prêt solidaire.
Madame Mariam (femme assise au milieu sur la photo) est une grande restauratrice à Sabalibougou. Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter 35 poulets au marché. Les poulets sont rôtis et revendus au comptant ou à crédit à la porte de leur maison à une clientèle composée majoritairement d’hommes. Madame Mariam espère réaliser avec ce prêt un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 35 000 FCFA qui sera utilisé, pour être réinvesti dans l’activité et assurer les besoins du foyer en produits de première nécessité. Madame Mariam ambitionne d’acheter une parcelle à usage d’habitation dans ce partenariat avec Soro Yiriwaso.

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.
