The Fougnegue I group is made up of married women who all live in polygamous families in Ziangolodougou, a village in Kadiolo, the 3rd largest administrative region in Mali. The women have an average age of 42 years old, and an average of four children each. They are working with the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, in order to successfully carry out their farming work during the rainy season. This is their third loan with Soro Yiriwaso. Their previous loans were correctly repaid.

The speculation cultivated is: the peanut with Kadiatou, standing in the middle of the photo. With her loan, she plans to buy inputs, seeds, and pay the labor costs for the maintenance of 4 hectares. After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village, at the Kadiolo Market, to a clientele made up of consumers and resellers.

She plans to earn an average monthly profit of 200,000 FCFA per harvest. The profit will allow her to pay back her loan and help her husband cover 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.
