In this Group: Mariam , Batoma , Kadia , Fanta
The women who make up the group Danaya are all married women who are 38 years old on average, have five children and all live in large traditional conjugal families with their brothers, sisters, co-spouses, children and spouses. They live in the neighborhood of Dougounina, which is under the jurisdiction of the city of Bougouni, the third administrative region of the Republic of Mali. They know one another through parental relations. Faced with difficulties in properly buying products due to a lack of financial resources, they decided to join the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso's loan program. They are on their fifth group loan, having settled the balance of their previous four loans. With this loan, the president of the group, Mariam D., expects to buy 200 kg of African locust tree nuts to make "Sounbala," which is very valued in African sauce, as well as 300 kg of dried baobab leaves and 150 kg of bissap. All the spices will be bought in Bougoni and its surrounding areas, to then be resold together for cash and in bulk at the market of Bougoni to a customer base composed largely of women. With this loan the women plan to make a monthly profit of 15,000 FCFA per month, of which a part will be used to repay their loan and the rest used to pay for their children's health costs.

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.
