Badeya is a group of women from Médine-coura in Koutiala. They live in large traditional families with their husbands, children and other relatives. They are, on average, 30 years old and have at least three children.

The women sell various items, such as pagnes (traditional, wrap-around clothing), sugar, cakes and soaps. The group members would like to increase the size of their businesses so they have decided to work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso.

Aminata (standing on the far left in the photo) sells soaps. She will use her loan to buy a large quantity of high quality soaps in Koutiala. She sells her product at home or at the market to various customers.

Most of the group members expect to earn an average of 90,000 francs CFA over the loan cycle, but Aminata expects to earn 105,000 francs CFA. The women will use their earnings to repay their loans, provide for their personal expenses and increase their working capital. They would like to continue to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso to ensure the continuation of their stock levels.

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.
