They collaborate with the micro-finance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, so that they can carry out their winter farming activities smoothly. They are on their third loan from the institution and the two previous loans have been repaid in full.

Lamine, who is standing second from the left in the photo, grows corn. With his loan he is planning to buy inputs and seeds, and also pay for labor and hoeing of three hectares of land. Once harvested, the produce will be sold in the village, at the market, to a customer base made up of men and women.

He expects to make a profit of 450,000FCFA per season. This profit will enable him to repay his loan and manage his family's daily outgoings.

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.
