The eight members of the Djiguisseme II Group are married men who average 26 years of age and two children each, and all live in traditional families in Foh, a village in Sikasso, Mali's third administrative region.

They collaborate with microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to carry out their agricultural work during the rainy season. The group is on their third loan with the institution and the previous two loans have been properly repaid.

The crop is corn and Moussa, standing in the middle of the photo, plans to purchase supplies and seeds and to pay for labor costs for two hectares with his loan. After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village and at the market in Sikasso to a group of customers made up of men and women.

Moussa expects to see an average profit of 300,000 CFA francs per season. This profit will allow him to repay his loan, as well as to help his extended family with their daily expenses.

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.
