Kounadi is a group of four women who are all married, average 35 years of age and have on average four children each. The majority of them live in monogamous families in Sanoubougou 1, one of the districts of the town of Sikasso (Mali's third administrative region).

They are collaborating for the first time with the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, with the goal of satisfying customer demand. This group of women sells a variety of general products, including soaps (as is the case for Kadia C.), firewood and children's clothing.

With her loan, Kadia C. is planning on buying ten cartons of soap. She gets her supplies at the large market and sells them, for cash and on a retail basis, in neighboring villages and within her family, to a customer base made up of men and women.

She is expecting to make an average monthly profit of 50,000FCFA, of which part will be used to help her husband with the daily expenses and the rest invested in her business.

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.
