The members of the group have joined Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their business, for some, or to start a new income-generating activity. This is their first solidarity loan.
Fatoumata (second woman sitting from the right in the photo) is a successful grain seller in Gachi and its surroundings. She sells different types of grains. She plans to use her loan to buy 3 bags of millet at the Gassola market. She sells for cash and on credit, to a customer base which consists of men and women.
With this loan, Fatoumata is expecting average monthly profits to reach 15,000 CFA francs, which will be reinvested in the business and also used to buy the condiments that her family 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.
