The ten members of the Katiere-Ton 3 group are married women who on average are 37 years old with three children, living for the most part in traditional families in Gniriwani, a village in the Farakala commune, which is part of Sikasso, 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 third agricultural loan cycle with the institution, and previous loans have been repaid in full.

The crop cultivated is rice featuring Mrs. Ina, who is sitting in the first position from right to left in the photo of this Katiere-Ton 3 group of women.

She will use her loan to buy one 50-kilo bag of fertilizer, one container of herbicide, and pay plowing costs to maintain 0.5 hectares (about 1.24 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 61,000 CFA francs per crop year, which will enable her to pay off her loan and its interest, and help her husband with daily household 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.
