Sigimame Group
In this Group: Korotoumou, Fatoumata , Batoma , Nana
The members of the Sigimame Group are married women who are, on average, 39 years old, and have four children. They all live in polygamous families in Kolondieba, one of the prefectures of the third administrative region of Mali.

The women want to work continuously to improve their businesses, so they work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their sixth loan and they intend to repay it correctly.

Korotoumou (second from the right in the photo) will use her loan to buy two sacks of maize. She sells her product at the Kolondieba daily market and buys more stock in Kolondieba as well. She has various customers and sells mostly for cash, although occasionally she offers sales on credit.

Korotoumou expects to earn a monthly average of 10,000 francs CFA, which she will use to repay her loan and help her husband with the day-to-day expenses of their household.

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.
