Flamboyant Group
In this Group: Salimata , Fanta , Korotoumou , Aminata , Mama
The five members of the Flamboyant group, the majority of whom live in polygamous households, average 34 years of age with four children each. They all live in the village of Kanadjiguila in the Mandé commune/Kati circle and they got to know each other as relatives, friends, neighbors and through their income generating activities at the Kanadjiguila market.

The group members have small businesses selling all sorts of second-hand clothing, utensils, cereals and groundnut seeds. With a view to expanding their businesses, the members decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their first group loan cycle.

Salimata, who is sitting on the far left of the photo, is a significant seller of high quality and all other sorts of second-hand clothing. She is planning to use her loan to buy a bale of clothing in the market. She resells her goods on a retail basis in Kanadjiguila and door-to-door to a customer base made up primarily of women. As a result of this loan, Salimata hopes to make an average monthly profit of 50,000FCFA which will be used to reinvest in her business and to provide for her family's small requirements.

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.
