The members of the Banakane 5 group are all married women of an average age of 50 with six children, living in polygamous families in Bandiagara, in the fifth administrative region of Mali.
They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso micro finance institution in order to manage their market gardening businesses during this winter's end.
This is their first loan from the institution.
The crops they cultivate are mainly onions as is the case of Mrs. Fatim Hamadou who is standing first from left to right in the photo.
With her loan, she plans to buy seeds and fertiliser. After harvesting, she sells the produce in the villages of Bandiagara and Mopti to her clientele of men and women.
She hopes to make a profit of 24000 Francs CFA at the end of the season. This profit will enable her to help her husband with family expenses and to reinvest the remainder 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.
