In this Group: Mamou Issa, Abi , Fanta , Diata, Koniba , Maminata , Nassoum , Kadia, Salimata , Chatou
The ten members of the Jekadi D group in Kapala are all married women and live in large traditional households. They are, on average, 33 years and have at least 4 children. Kapala is part of the outer ring of Sikasso (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali).
The group members all farm tiger nuts.
With the goal of making their farming activity more profitable, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso's loan program two years ago. Chatou, one of the group members, intends to use her loan to buy 1 bag of urea and 2 bags of complex cereals, and to use the rest to pay for labour and hoeing costs. These agricultural inputs will be bought at the grand market in Sikasso. After the rainy season, the harvest will be stored for a certain while so that the crops will be worth more when sold at the grand market in Sikasso at retail (often in bulk) to various customers.
Chatou foresees realizing an average profit of 45,000 to 80,000 FCFA, which will be used to pay the interest on the loan and to provide for her family's ongoing needs.

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.
