The ten members of the Wolale E group are married women who on average are 34 years old with three children, all living in traditional families in Cinzara, a village in the municipality of San, part of the San Circle in the fourth administrative region of Mali.

They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso micro-finance institution in carrying out their agricultural activities during the rainy season. This is their sixth loan with the institution, and past loans have been repaid in full.

The selected crops are groundnuts and millet featuring Minata, the first woman kneeling from right to left in the photo. She intends to use her loan to buy agricultural inputs, seeds, small agricultural equipment, and pay for plowing to cultivate one hectare (about 2.4 acres).

After harvest the crop will be sold at village level and in San, to a clientele composed of men and women. She expects to make an average profit of 45,000 CFA francs by the end of the growing season.

This profit will enable her to pay off her loan and also to help her husband with daily 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.
