Djougousomperin Group
In this Group: Bintou , Silvie , Bintou , Fatoumata, Kadiatou
The members of the group Djougousomperin (composed of five married women) average 33 years of age and three children. They reside in the Hamdallaye district of the city of Sikasso and commerce in various goods, but the predominant work is the sale of potatoes, plus bowls, tubs, and firewood.

The women of the group are collaborating with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso to satisfy their burgeoning customer base. They are on their tenth solidarity loan (group loan). The preceding ones have been correctly repaid. They plan to use this loan to buy four 100-kg sacks of potatoes, two truck-loads of firewood, and three dozen metal and plastic tubs. They get their supplies either in Bamako (capital of Mali) or locally in Sikasso and surrounding villages. The goods are sold at the retail level for cash, in the marketplaces of Sikasso and in the districts, to customers composed of women and men.

They each hope to realize an average profit of 27,000 francs CFA a month that will be used to pay the loan interest and to invest the rest in their businesses.

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.
