The members of the Kondiougou 8 group are married women who, on average, are 41 years old, have 5 children, and live in polygamous families in Bandiagara in the 5th administrative region of Mali.

They are working with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to see their farming activities through the end of the rainy season. This is their first loan with the institution.

They are primarily growing onions with Madame Salmatou Amadou standing at the far left in the photo. With her loan, she would like to buy seeds and fertilizer. They sell their crops after the harvest in the villages of Ondougou and Bandiagara to a clientele composed of men and women.

She would like to earn a profit of 24,000 FCFA by the end of the farming season. This profit will allow her to help her husband with the family expenses: food, schooling for their children, and health. She will reinvest the rest in her business.

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.
