The ten members of the Noupagagnon I Group are married men with an average age of 40 years and an average of six children. They are all living in traditional families in N'Goloniena, a village in the third administrative region of Mali (Sikasso). They are working with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to carry out their agricultural activities during the rainy season. The group is on their fourth agricultural loan with the institution, and all of their prior loans have been repaid.

Zoumana, shown seated in the center of the photo, grows crops of corn. With his loan, he intends to purchase the fertilizer required to maintain two hectares of crops. After the harvest, the produce is divided into two parts. One part is reserved for food, and the rest is sold at the village and in Lobougoula to a clientele composed primarily of men, and rarely to women.

He hopes to earn 200,000 Francs CFA during this agricultural cycle. This income will allow him to repay his loan and also to help his extended family with their 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.
