Katiereton 3 Group
In this Group: Bakary , Bakary , Soungalo , Chaka , Chaka Zegue
The members of the group called KATIERETON 3 are married men with an average age of 50 and nine children, and most live in polygamous families in Nimprodioula, one of the villages making up the township of Sikasso, (third administrative region of Mali). They collaborate with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso so as to be able to farm successfully during the rainy season. This is their second time working with the institution and their prior loan was correctly reimbursed.

The crop cultivated by this group of men is generally maize, as is the case with Soungalo. With this new loan he intends to buy agricultural entrants (fertilizer and herbicide) and small agricultural tools. The crops are sold after harvest, both in the village and at the Sikasso market, to a clientele composed of men and women.

Soungalo expects to make an average profit of 115,000 F CFA per harvest and hopes to continue his collaboration with Soro Yiriwaso. His ambition is to buy a bicycle for his children.

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.
