With the goal of renewing their cash supplies, the group members decided to join the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their fourth solidarity loan.
Ms. Aminata (the woman sitting at the far right in the photo) is famous for selling clothing (used) of all qualities. She intends to use this loan to purchase 3 bales of secondhand clothing wholesale in Médine. By hawking, her sales are made to a customer base composed mostly of women paying with cash or credit in Sabalibougou.
With this loan, Ms. Aminata plans on making an average monthly profit of 100,000 francs CFA that will be used for reinvesting in her work and ensuring her children’s care 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.
