In this Group: Mariam, Minata, Adiara, Oumou, Nassoun
The Sindiya group is made up of five women (of whom three are married and two are single). They are, on average, 31 years old and have four children. They live in traditional extended families in the Heremakono Nord neighborhood of Bougouni. The group knows each other from neighborhood, friendship, and business ties.

In order to increase their financial capacity and better conduct their businesses, the group joined the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso. They are on their first loan.

This group of women sells clothing, like Nassoun, who is the first woman standing on the left in the photo. With her loan, she plans to buy 10 meters of damask fabric and six lengths of pagne [bright, colorful fabric] from the wholesalers in Bamako. Nassoun makes her sales at a market and from home, for cash and credit, to a mixed group of customers.

Nassoun hopes to earn an average monthly profit of 15,000 francs CFA, which she will use to invest in her business and pay back the loan.

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.
