The five women of the group Kobakè are married for the most part in monogamous households; the women average 33 years of age and four children each, all living in Kanadjiguila, in Commune de Mandé / Cercle de Kati. And they know one another through ties of community and revenue-generating businesses at the Kanadjiguila market. The group members do commerce in tubers (yams, sweet potatoes, and potatoes), utensils, and clothing.

With the goal of increasing their business capital, the group members decided to collaborate with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their first solidarity loan cycle.

Ms. Tatché (the woman sitting at the far right in the photo) is a major vendor of tubers (yams, sweet potatoes, and potatoes) in the district. She intends to use her loan to purchase 350 kg of yams in Bamako. The sales are made at the retail level to a customer base composed mostly of women in Kanadjiguila.

With this loan, Ms. Tatché hopes to obtain an average monthly profit of 45,000 francs CFA that will be used to reinvest in her business and to ensure her children’s care.

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.
