The ten members of the group KANTIGUIYA III are married women, who average 48 years of age and two children each, all living in polygamous families in DIALAKOROBA, 2nd administrative region of the Republic of Mali. The women are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to carry out their farm work during the rainy season. They are on their sixth farm loan with the institution.

The crops grown are rice and millet, as is the case with WESSE, who is the first person standing at the right in the photo. With this loan, she intends to pay for farm inputs and seeds and to cover the cost of plowing to maintain 2 hectares.

After the harvest, the produce is sold to a customer base composed of retailers and consumers in DIALAKOROBA. She plans on making an average profit of 195,000 francs CFA per planting. This profit will enable her to pay back the loan, as well as to help out her husband in meeting day-to-day 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.
