The group members have small businesses selling firewood, condiments and groundnut seeds, and also practising restauration activities. With a view to expand their businesses, the members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their first group loan cycle.
Safiatou, who is sitting on the far right of the photo, has a great reputation for selling firewood. She is planning to use her loan to buy one truck load of wood in the villages surrounding Bamako. She resells her goods on a retail basis in Kanadjiguila to a mixed customer base. As a result of this loan, Safiatou hopes to make an average monthly profit of 50,000FCFA which will be used to reinvest in her business. Her aim is, through this relationship with Soro Yiriwaso, to buy a plot of land to habitation purposes.
Madame Safiatou (femme assise à l’extrême droite sur la photo) a une grande réputation dans la vente du bois de chauffe.

Madame Safiatou espère réaliser avec ce prêt un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 50 000 FCFA qui sera utilisé, pour être réinvesti dans l’activité. Elle a pour objectif d’acheter un lot à usage d’habitation dans cette relation avec Soro Yiriwaso.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
