The members of the group Badenya are essentially married women averaging 36 years of age and three children living in monogamous families in MAMASSONI, a district in Sikasso City (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The group members are on their eighth collaboration with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to meet the needs of their customers.  The previous loans have all been settled.  

The group members sell fruit and vegetables, as is the case with Ms. YOUMA K., and they are active in food service, etc.  With her loans YOUMA plans on buying 10 baskets of fruit and vegetables.  She gets her supplies at the big market of Sikasso.  Accepting cash and often credit from a customer base composed of men and women, she makes her sales out of her home, at the Sikasso market, and in neighboring villages.  

She envisions making an average monthly profit of 37,500 francs CFA. Part of the profits will be put into savings and used for meeting family needs. The other part will be invested in her business.  She is counting on having more capital in order to satisfy her customers further.

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.
