Salimata, third on the right of the photo, sells wax pagnes (traditional printed cloth) in this group. Her knowledge in the area makes her a sought-after seller. With her loan, she will buy 8 pieces of wax pagnes, which she will sell on foot in the neightbourhood and to her family, to both male and female customers who buy on credit or with cash. She purchases supplies at Bamako and often at the Sikasso city market. She is aiming to earn 27,500 FCFA per month on average, part of which will be used to repay the loan, and part of which will go towards her savings.

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.
