Tièssiri 2 Group
In this Group: Alimata , Neh , Oumou , Hawa , Ba Oumou , Rokia , Minata
Predominantly married in large polygamous families, the seven members of the group Tièssiri 2 are on average 29 years old, have 2 children and all live in the village of Siradjankoro in the rural commune of Pelengana in the region of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali). They know one another through marital, neighborhood and parental ties. With the goal of increasing their cultivable land, they appealed to Soro Yiriwaso and are on their 1st farm loan. The members of the group are going to cultivate millet, peanuts, sesame and fonio (a type of millet produced in Mali). Mrs. Minata Traoré expects to use her loan to buy 25 kg of peanut seeds and to recruit the manual labor for the labor, weeding, and harvesting in the different cultivated plots of land. She refreshes her supply of agricultural seeds at the fair in Cinzana Gare and gets her manual labor from an association of young people and women from the village. With 1.5 hectares of land, Mrs. Minata Traoré expects to produce 20 bags of peanuts and 7 bags of fonio. A part of the fonio and peanuts produced is ordinarily consumed by the family itself or used during marriage ceremonies, baptism and funerals, while the rest will be sold to meet the needs of the household in condiments, the cares of their children's house, and other things. Mrs. Minata Traoré like the other women of the group, has the objective of dietary self-sufficiency in the village.

Mariés majoritairement dans des grandes familles polygamiques, les sept membres du groupe Tièssiri 2 ont en moyenne 29 ans, 2 enfants et vivent toutes dans le village de Siradjankoro dans la commune rurale de Pelengana dans la région de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali). Elles se sont connues à travers des liens de mariage, de voisinage et de parenté.
Dans le but d'augmenter leurs superficies de culture, elles ont fait recours à Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 1ier cycle de prêt de campagne.
Les membres du groupe vont cultiver le mil, l’arachide, le sésame et le fonio.
Madame Minata Traoré compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter 25kg de semences d’arachide, recruter la main d’œuvre pour les activités de labour, de désherbage et de récolte dans ses différentes parcelles de culture.
Elle se ravitaille en semences agricoles à la foire Cinzana Gare et en main d’œuvre avec l’association des jeunes et des femmes du village.
Avec une superficie de 1,50hectare, Madame Minata Traoré compte produire 20 sacs d’arachide et 7 sacs de fonio.
Une partie de la production du fonio et d’arachide est auto consommée dans la famille ordinairement ou utilisée lors des cérémonies de mariage, baptême ou funérailles alors que le reste sera vendu pour satisfaire les besoins du foyer en condiments, soins de santé des enfants et autres.
Madame Minata Traoré à l’image des autres femmes a pour objectif d’assurer l’auto suffisance alimentaire dans le village.

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.
