BENKADI 2 is a group of married women of the village of Dah of the prefecture of San, area of Ségou, fourth administrative area of the republic of Mali, who live in large traditional families.
They are on average 35 years old, with 6 children and cultivate peanuts.
With the aim of making their farms profitable, the members of the group have decided to incorporate the loan program of Soro Yiriwaso starting 3 years ago.
After having correctly refunded the preceding loans, they are on their third countryside loan.

KARYA K. will use her loan to buy, a sufficient quantity of peanut seed, small equipment and seeders, at the large market of San city.

After the wintering, harvests are stored during a certain time so that they reach best value before being sold at the large market of Dah, San and in the surrounding markets, in small lots (often large lots), for cash to customers generally from the big cities.

The members of the group expect to each realize, after the flow of their agricultural product, a benefit of 35.000 FCFA which will be used to refund the interest of the loan and the current expenditure of the family.

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.
