Groupe 2 De Djekafo Togo
In this Group: Kadiatou Yeh , Banah , Satou , Kadiatou Mama , Maichata
The five members of group 2 of the association Djekafo of Togo are married women in major traditional families with an average of 42 years in age and 4 children. They all live in the village of Togo in the rural neighborhood of Skoïba in the region of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali) and know each other from relationships, marriages and the neighborhood.
With the goal of expanding their farm land and having agricultural fertilizer ready in time for the beginning of winter, they resorted to Soro Yiriwaso and are in their 2nd cycle of a farm loan.
They cultivate millet, hibiscus flowers, sesame, beans, and peanuts.
Ms. Satou Fané intends to use her loan to buy 3 sacs of fertilizer, 50kg of seed peanuts and recruit, with the rest of the money, workforce for the jobs of plowing and weeding.
She gets fresh supplies of seed and fertilizer at the Ségou faire (at the big market). With an plot of 3 hectares, she hopes to produce 800 kg of beans, 18 sacs of peanuts, 4 sacs of millet and bean stocks to make bales.
The bales of beans are stored and sold during the off-season. A part of the harvest is consumed by herself, while the other half is stored and sold little by little for condiment needs and social occasions (marriage, baptisms and funerals).
Like all the other members of the group, Ms. Satou Fané has as a goal to raise small ruminants to equip herself with agricultural materials.
Les cinq membres du groupe 2 de l’association Djekafo de Togo sont des femmes mariées dans des grandes familles traditionnelles avec en moyenne 42 ans et 4 enfants. Elles habitent toutes le village de Togo dans la commune rurale de Sakoïba dans la région de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des liens de parenté, de mariage et de voisinage.
Dans le but d’augmenter leurs parcelles de cultures et d’avoir des intrants agricoles à leur disposition à temps en début d’hivernage, elles ont fait recours à Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 2ème cycle de prêt de campagne.
Elles cultivent du mil, de l’oseille de Guinée, du sésame, du haricot et de l’arachide.
Madame Satou Fané compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter, 3sacs d’engrais, 50 kg de grains d’arachide de semence et recruter avec le reste d’argent de la main d’œuvre pour les activités de labour et de désherbage.
Elle se ravitaille en semences et en engrais à la foire de Ségou (au grand marché). Avec une superficie de 3hectare, elle espère produire 800 kg d’haricot, 18 sacs d’arachide, 4 sacs de mil et des fanes d’haricot destinées à faire des bottes.
Les bottes d’haricot sont stockées et vendues pendant la période de soudure. Une partie de la récolte est auto consommée tandis que l’autre moitié est stockée et vendue petit à petit pour des besoins de condiments et cas sociaux (mariage, baptême et funérailles).
Tout comme les autres membres du groupe, Madame Satou Fané a pour objectif de faire l’élevage des petits ruminants pour s’équiper en matériels agricoles.

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.
