The members of FASSOKADI III group are married women who average 40 years of age and six children. They all live in polygamous families in Korobarrage, one of the villages in Sikasso, third administrative region of Mali.

They work with Kiva's partner, the MFI Soro Yiriwaso, in order to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. They are seeking their third loan from the MFI, and the previous loans were repaid without problems.

Mrs. Mamou (first one on the left in the standing row) is growing corn. She intends to use her loan to buy seeds and fertilizers, and to pay for plowing to maintain 0.5 hectare.

After the harvest, the production is sold at the market in the village, to a clientele comprising both men and women. She intends to turn an average profit of XOF 85'000 (ca US$ 170) per planting.

This profit will be used to repay the loan, and also to help her husband cover 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.
