Married mostly into monogamous households, the five members of the Danaya group are, on average, 33 years old and have three children. They all live in Lassa and know each other through neighborhood ties and from business at the Lassa market. The group members engage in small-scale commerce selling wax pagnes, embroidered pagnes, damask fabrics, cosmetics, and artisan goods.

In order to increase their business funds, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. This is their second group loan.

Aïcha (the woman standing on the far left in the photo) is a great seller of clothing (wax pagnes, embroidered pagnes, etc.). She plans to use her loan to buy 20 lengths of wax pagnes from Bamako. Sales will be made at retail in a market to mostly female customers.

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.
