The Guintan group is mostly made up of women in monogamous relationships. They have an average age of 31 and, on average, 4 children. They all live in Lafiabougou, one of the districts of Bamako, and got to know each other via neighbourly relationships. The group members are small retailers of groundnut paste, condiments, clothing and beauty products. The group members decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their businesses and are on their 1st group loan.

Marie (sitting on the left in the picture) is well-known throughout the district as a reseller of high-quality groundnut paste. She plans to use her loan to buy 2 bags of groundnuts in Bamako. In order to make the paste, she selects the best groundnuts, grills them, shells them and grinds them in a mill. The prepared paste is then ready to be sold to a retail clientèle mostly made up of women. Thanks to this loan, Marie hopes to make an average monthly profit of 40 000 francs which will be reinvested in her business.
Le groupe Guintan est majoritairement composé de monogames. Elles ont en moyenne 31 ans et 4 enfants. Elles habitent toutes à Lafiabougou l’un des quartiers de Bamako et se sont connues à travers des liens de voisinage. Les membres du groupe font le petit commerce de pâtes d’arachides, condiments, vêtements et produits cosmétiques. Dans le but d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce, les membres du groupe ont décidé de collaborer avec Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 1er cycle de prêt solidaire.
Madame Marie (femme assise à l’extrême gauche sur la photo) a une grande renommée dans la vente des pâtes d’arachides de qualité dans tout quartier. Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter 2 sacs de grains d’arachides à Bamako. Pour faire la pâte d’arachide, on trie les meilleurs grains, les grille, les épluches et les Broie au moulin. La pâte ainsi faite est prête à la vente en détail à une clientèle composée majoritairement de femmes. Madame Marie espère réaliser avec ce prêt un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 40 000 FCFA qui sera utilisé, pour être réinvesti dans l’activité.

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.
