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 second solidarity loan cycle.
Ms. Ami (sitting second from the right in the photo) is a major vendor of clothing of Wax ’pagnes’ (the colorful cloth of western Africa). She intends to use her loan to purchase 40 lengths of Wax ‘pagne’ cloth wholesale at the big market. In Lafiabougou and by hawking, her sales are made at the retail level to mostly women customers.
With this loan, Ms. Ami hopes to make an average monthly profit of 90,000 francs CFA that will be used for reinvesting in her business and for meeting sundry needs at home.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
