In this Group: Mariam , Fanta , Diomine , Mamou , Mamou
The Danaya Group is made up of married women living with their spouses and children within the framework of a nuclear family. Members have an average age of 41 and an average of seven children each. They all live in Sebenikoro, one of the districts of Bamako. They know each other through the bonds of family, community and friendship. The members of the group sell industrially-made children's clothing, cosmetic products and fruit juices. In order to replenish their cash supplies, the members of the group decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their third group loan.

Mariam, the woman standing to the far right of the photograph, has established a solid reputation for selling children's clothing. She plans on using this loan to purchase 35 sets of children's clothes in bulk from the main market. She will then travel around Sebenikoro selling these items of clothing to a predominantly female customer base. With this loan, Mariam hopes to earn an average monthly profit of 45,000 CFCA, which will be reinvested into her business and also used to meet her children's needs.

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.
