Bèbikoun Group
In this Group: Aminata , Hawa , Bintou , Tata , Adam
The members of the Bèbikon group are all married and living in monogamous families. They are on the average 31 years old and have two children. They all live in the Bagadadji district of Ségou (the fourt administrative district of Mali). They know each other as neighbors, relatives, or as vendors working at the Bagadadji market. They sell rice, beans, wax “pagnes” [traditional fabric for wrap clothing], heating wood etc. With the goal of increasing their business capital and diversify their merchandise, they have joined the Soro Yiriwaso credit program; they are now on their third group loan.

Mrs. Aminata D., who is the leader of the group, plans to use her loan to purchase beans. She is well-known in Bagadadji as she sells high-quality beans, and is nicknamed “sho-Ami” [“Ami the bean lady”]. She purchases her stock in the villages close to Ségou (in Zogofina, Sirakoro and Togo) and sells for cash and in credit, from home and at the Bagadadji market, to a customer base composed of both women and men.
Mrs. Aminata D. hopes to achieve a monthly income of 38,000 West African Francs, which will be used for savings and for taking care of various needs of her family, such as buying condiments and soap. Her goal is to become a wholesaler thanks to this partnership with Soro Yriwaso/Kiva.

Les membres du groupe Bèbikoun sont toutes mariées dans des familles monogames. Elles ont en moyenne 31 ans et 2 enfants. Elles habitent toutes dans le quartier Bagadadji de Ségou (4ème Région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des relations de voisinage de mariage et de leurs activités génératrices de revenus dans le marché de Bagadadji.
Elles font le commerce de riz, de haricot, de pagnes wax, de bois de chauffe etc.
Dans le souci d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce et de diversifier les marchandises à vendre, elles ont adhéré au programme crédit de Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 3ème cycle de prêt solidaire.
Madame Aminata D. qui est la présidente du groupe compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter du haricot. Elle a une grande réputation à Bagadadji pour sa vente de haricot de bonne qualité d’où son pseudonyme sho-Ami (haricot Ami).
Elle se ravitaille dans les villages environnants de Ségou (Zogofina, Sirakoro et Togo), et effectue sa vente au comptant et à crédit, à domicile et au marché de Bagadadji, à une clientèle composée de femmes et d’hommes.
Madame Aminata D. espère avoir un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 38 000FCFA qui sera utilisé pour épargner et prendre en charge les petits besoins de la famille en condiments et savon.
Elle a pour ambition de devenir grossiste dans ce partenariat avec Soro Yiriwaso / Kiva.

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.
