In this Group: Abi , Massitan , Sali , Afou , Afou , Sali Boukary , Woriata
The seven members of the KOTOGNOGONTALA 6 group are married women who are, on average, 33 years old with three children each. Most of them live in traditional families in Fachoribougou, a village located in the commune of Kaboila, Cercle of Sikasso (third administrative region of Mali).

They have joined the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to successfully carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. They are now on their eleventh farming loan with the institution and have duly repaid all their previous loans.

Woriata, a member of the group, grows groundnut. In the photo, she is first from the right in the front row. She plans to use her loan to buy one 50-kilo bag of fertilizer, one can of herbicide, and also to cover the cost of plowing to maintain 0.25 hectare of land.

After the harvest, she sells her production in Sikasso and in her village, to both men and women who pay her in cash and sometimes on credit. She is expecting to make an average profit of 73,000 CFA francs per planting season. Thanks to this profit, she will be able to repay her loan and the interest, and to help her husband with the family's daily expenses.

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.
