Danaya Group
In this Group: Nana, Oumou , Mounina , Lalla Issa
Danaya is a group of four women that live in traditional polygamous households. On average, they are 48 years of age and have 6 children. They live in the Bamanan Kin (Diamarabougou) neighborhood of Markala (4th administrative Region of the republic of Mali). They know each other through bonds of neighborhood and of membership to the same traditional association of women of the neighborhood. This association was formed by the NGO ROCAM II as part of their efforts to train in the dyeing of cloth, literacy, sanitation, etc. These women of the Danaya group work selling various items and approached Soro Yiriwaso in the interest of satisfying the needs of their clientele. After four successfully repaid loans, they are on their 5th group loan, which they plan to use to buy 10 pieces of wax for making batik cloth, 10 pieces of fabrics, six skeins of embroidery thread, 2 bags of sugar, 20 kg of ginger, 1 crate of lemons, 1 crate of tamarinds, 1 package of powdered baobab fruit, 1 package of powdered fruit juice, 1 package of flavored sodas and 68 loads of firewood. They supply themselves in wax and in fabrics once a month in Bamako and occasionally in the big market of Ségou. They buy sugar and ingredients for the preparation of local juices at the weekly market in Diamarabougou Markala and they buy firewood weekly at the market in Sarkala. Their sales are made door-to-door or on foot, for cash and for credit to a clientele composed of women and men. They hope to realize a monthly average profit of 71,000 FCFA that will serve to satisfy certain family expenses, cover their small personal needs, repay the loan and permit them to participate in social events. Their ambitions are to have a means of transportation for the firewood and to save little by little in order to have a house of their own for themselves and their children.

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.
