The members of the Dembagnouma group (composed of 6 married women and one unmarried) have an average age of 35 with on average, 2 children. They live in the Kaboila II district of the town of Sikasso.



The women of this group have varied commercial activities but the main one is selling oranges, cooking oil, shoes, and cocoyams.



They work with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso so as to satisfy the needs of their clientele. They are on their 5th solidarity loan (group loan). All the preceding loans have been correctly reimbursed.



With this loan they intend to buy 10 wagon loads of oranges, 10 dozen shoes, and 20 sacks of cocoyams. They do their buying right in Sikasso, in Bobo (Burkina Faso), and in Bamako (capital of Mali). The products are sold retail and mostly for cash in the market of the town of Sikasso, in the neighborhood and in certain markets in nearby villages, to a clientele composed of women and men.



They each hope to make an average profit of 20,000 F CFA monthly, money that will be used to cover family expenses, investing any remainder 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.
