This Djiguiya 2 group is made up of 10 married women, who have an average age of 36 with, on average, 5 children. They live in traditional extended (conjugal) families with their brothers, sisters, children and husbands, in the village of Kola, in the rural community of Koumantou, prefecture of Bougouni, Sikasso region, Republic of Mali.

They met through farming or through being related to each other by marriage. So as to improve their productivity, they decided to join the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso. They are on their third rural loan and both the preceding loans were correctly reimbursed. With this loan they intend to buy 25 sacks of fertilizer, of which 9 will be complex fertilizer and 16 sacks of urea to plant 3 hectares of maize, 1.5 hectares of sorghum, and 1 hectare of beans. The expected yield is 3.5 tons of maize, 1.5 tons of sorghum, and 1 ton of beans. The fertilizer is purchased from the merchants in Bougouni and from itinerant merchants at the market fairs of Koumantou. At the end of the harvest season, each of the women expects to make a profit of 50,000 F CFA, which they will invest in market gardening before the next major agricultural season.

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.
