In this Group: Awa , Awa , Aoua , Fatoumata , Awa , Satam
Mostly married in monogamous households, the six members of the Sabougnouman group are on average 45 years old with six children. They all live in Niomirambougou, one of Bamako's districts, and became acquainted through neighborhood ties and their income-generating activities at the Niomirambougou market.

Group members trade condiments (peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, parsley), cosmetics, fish and food preparations. In order to increase their stock-in-trade, the group decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their second group loan.

Ms. Fatoumata (third position from right to left) is a great vendor of condiments. She intends to use her loan to buy eight baskets of tomatoes, three baskets of peppers, one basket of parsley and eight baskets of eggplant in Bamako. Retail sales are conducted in Niomirambougou to a clientele composed mostly of women.

With this loan Ms. Fatoumata hopes to achieve average monthly profits of 90,000 CFA francs, to be reinvested in the business and use to meet household needs.

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.
