The nine members of group Alla Kan Soutra are married women who are on average 41 years old with five children; most of them live in polygamous families in Batiemogobougou, one of the villages of Loulouni Township in Loulouni sub-prefecture, Mali's third administrative region.
They are partnering with micro-finance organization Soro Yiriwaso to manage their agricultural activities during the rainy season. They are on their third loan with the organization. Previous loans well successfully repaid.
Aminata, who is standing in the middle in the picture, cultivates groundnuts. With her loan, she plans on paying for fertilizer and seeds to maintain five acres. After the harvest, the crop is sold in the village and at markets in Dallen and Loulouni, to a clientele comprising men and women.
She expects an average profit of about 165,000 CFA at the end of the agricultural cycle. This profit will help her pay back her loan and support her husband with daily expenses.

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.
