Married mostly into polygamous households, the five members of the Bebiyereye group are, on average, 34 years old and have four children. They all live in Djelibougou, one of the neighborhoods in Bamako, and they know each other from family, friendship, and neighborhood ties and from their work in the Djelibougou market.

The group members engage in small-scale commerce selling different types of used clothing, firewood, charcoal, and cosmetics. In order to increase their business funds, the group members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. This is their first group loan.

Alimatou (the woman standing on the far right in the photo) is a grand merchant selling different types of high quality used clothing. She plans to use her loan to buy a bale of clothing from Bamako. Sales will be made at retail in the market and from traveling around to a mixed group of customers.

From this loan, Alimatou plans to earn an average monthly profit of 60,000 francs CFA which will be reinvested back into her business and will be used to support her household expenses.

Mariées majoritairement dans des ménages polygamiques, les cinq membres du groupe Bebiyereye ont en moyenne 34 ans et 4 enfants.

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.
