With the goal of resupplying themselves with cash, the group members decided to collaborate with the the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their third solidarity loan cycle.
Ms. Djénèba (the woman standing second from the right in the photo) is famous for selling onions. She intends to use her loan to purchase a tonne of onions wholesale in Bamako. Accepting cash or credit, she hawks her merchandise to mostly women customers.
With this loan, Ms. Djénèba hopes to make an average monthly profit of 70,000 francs CFA that will be used for reinvesting in her business and ensuring her children’s care.

Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter une tonne d’oignon à Bamako en gros. La revente se fait au comptant et à crédits à Ouolofobougou et en ambulant à une clientèle majoritairement composée de femmes.

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.
