Allakan Soutra Group
In this Group: Fatoumata , Adiara , Djeneba, Adiaratou, Afou, Fatoumata Siaka , Mah , Aminata , Madialia
The nine members of the Allakan Soutra group are married women who on average are 41 years old with four children, living for the most part in traditional families in Batiemogobougou, a village in the Loulouni commune, which is part of the Sikasso region, the third administrative region of Mali.

They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso micro-finance institution in carrying out their farming activities during the rainy season. They are on their fifth agricultural loan cycle with the institution, and previous loans have been repaid in full.

The crop cultivated is groundnuts featuring Mrs. Madialia, who is sitting in the first position from right to left in the photo of this Allakan Soutra group of women.

She will use her loan to buy two 50-kilo bags of fertilizer, one container of herbicide, and pay for plowing to maintain 0.75 hectares (about 1.85 acres).

After harvest the crop is sold at village level and in Sikasso, to a clientele composed of men and women, for cash and on credit.

She expects to make average profits of 85,000 CFA francs per crop year, which will enable her on the one hand to pay off her loan and its interest, and on the other hand to help her husband with daily household expenses.

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.
