They work with Kiva's partner, the MFI Soro Yiriwaso, in order to be successful with their agricultural activities during the rainy season. They are seeking their eighth loan from Soro Yiriwaso. Previous loans were repaid without problems.

Nasseta Clakayere, sitting in the center in the photograph, grows peanuts. With her loan, she intends to buy fertilizers and seeds to maintain 1 hectare of land.

After the harvest, the production gets sold in the village and at the market in SIKASSO, to a clientele comprising both men and women.

Nasseta Clakayere intends to turn an average monthly profit of XOF 130'000 (ca US$ 240) per farming cycle, to be used to repay the loan and help her husband take care of the 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.
