Siguidia Group
In this Group: Kadiatou , Fatoumata , Djata , Oumou , Nafissatou , Sita , Kadia Seydou
Predominantly married in traditional families with an average age of 40 and five children, the seven women in the Siguidia group all live in the city of Sikasso (third administrative region of Mali) and became acquainted through family ties, as neighbors and through their professional activities.

They sell clothes, mugs, potatoes, fruits and vegetables, grain cereals and manufacture incense for sale. In order to increase their working capital, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso and are on their first credit loan cycle.

Mrs. Fatoumata, sitting in the middle, plans to use her loan to purchase two dozen mugs. She buys locally from Sikasso wholesalers and conducts her sales as an itinerant vendor and from home, to both men and women customers.

Mrs. Fatoumata expects this loan will enable her to achieve average monthly profits of 20,000 FCFA, to be reinvested in the business and to take on some of the household 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.
