The ten women of the "Djiguissèmè" group are married and mostly live in monogamous households. They are on average 41 years old with four children. They all live in the town of Zenguela, in the Ségou region (4th administrative region of the Mali). They know each other through neighbourhood and family connections and from their income-generating activities in town. They run small businesses selling fish, condiments, cereals, yams, milk, coal, brooms, and wood. With the goal of increasing their capital, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their first solidarity (group) loan cycle. Ms. Mariam (the woman standing in the middle of the photo) is a major retailer of smoked fish in the town of Zenguela. She intends to use her loan to buy 120 kg of smoked fish from her supplier in order to satisfy the needs of her clientele. She makes her sales in cash at the town market and at home to a diverse clientele. Ms. Mariam hopes to realize an average monthly profit of 23,000 FCFA with this loan, which will be used to provide for her children and expand 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.
