In this Group: Setou , Awa , Mariam , Djira , Rokia, Korotoumou, Biba
The members of the HEREMAKONO I group are married women who are, on average, 31 years old with three children each. They all live in polygamous families in Kotla, one of the villages of the Fakola commune (third administrative region of Mali).

They have joined the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to successfully carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their second loan with the institution, and their previous loan was duly repaid.

Korotoumou, a member of the group, grows groundnuts. In the photo, she is in the standing row, first from the left.

She plans to use her loan to buy some farm inputs and seeds, and to cover the cost of plowing to maintain two hectares (4.9 acres) of land.

After the harvest, she sells her crop in her village, at the market, to a customer base consisting of men and women.

She is expecting to make an average profit of 145,500 CFA francs per growing season. This profit will allow her to repay her loan and to help her husband with the household's 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.
