Most live in polygamous families in COMOROW, one of the villages of the LOULOUNI commune in LOULOUNI subprefecture, 3rd administratiave region of Mali. They collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso in order to successfully operate their agricultural businesses during the rainy season. This is their fourth loan with the institution and all previous loans have been fully repaid. Just like SAMA VAMARA C., the group's leader, the predominant crop grown is rice. With her loan, she plans to buy planting supplies and small tools to maintain 0.5 hectare. The crops are sold in the village after the harvest to a clientele composed of men and women. She expects to make a profit of 20,000 CFA at the end of the crop year, which will enable her to pay off her loan and also to cover some family expenses. She hopes to maintain this collaboration with Soro Yiriwaso in order to farm a larger area and make a greater profit.

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.
