The members of the Kondiougou 3 group are all married women who are, on average, 46 years old and have four children. They all live in polygamous families in Bandiagara, in the fifth administrative region of Mali.

They are working with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to better carry out their small-scale farming at the end of this rainy season. They are on their second loan with the institution, and their previous loan has been repaid correctly.

Nafissa grows onions, and she is the person standing third from the left. With this loan, she plans to buy seeds and fertilizer.

After the harvest, crops are sold at the village level, in Bandiagara and Mopti, to men and women customers.

Nafissa hopes to earn 55,000 francs CFA at the end of the season. These earnings will allow her to help her husband with the family expenses: food, health and schooling costs. The rest will be reinvested in farming.

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.
