Alimata, who is standing in the middle of the photo, has been buying and selling "pagnes" (highly decorative and colourful pieces of fabric), both the "wax" and "real" varieties, in this Jiguisseme women's group for more than 12 years and is in great demand from her customers. With her loan she is planning to buy 20 pieces of "pagne" fabric (both "wax" and"real") at a wholesale price at Sikasso's Grand Market. She resells in Kaboïla, on a door-to-door basis, as well as within her family, to a customer base made up of men and women, for cash.

She is expecting to make an average monthly profit of 35,500FCFA, part of which will be used to repay her loan and the interest on it, while the rest will be saved. Her ambition is to increase her turnover in order to satisfy customer demand more readily.

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.
