The eight members of the Seneyiriwaton I Group are all married women who are, on average, 42 years old and have four children. They all live in polygamous families in the village of Safecore, in Sanankoroba (the second administrative region of Mali).

The women would like to improve their agricultural businesses during the winter months, so they work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their fourth loan.

Saly Yiribatie (standing second from the left in the photo) grows peanuts and millet. She plans to use her loan to buy seed and other agricultural products, and pay labour costs for two hectares of land. She sells her produce in Sanankoroba to retailers and consumers.

Saly Yiribatie expects to make an average profit of 175,000 francs CFA over the loan period. She will use this to repay her loan and help her husband to provide for the day-to-day expenses of their household.

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.
