The members of the Djiguisseme 1 group are married women with an average age of 39, on average 6 children, and who all live in traditional family settings in Kampogosso, one of the villages in San, 4th administrative region of Mali. They are working with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to be able to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. This is their 5th loan with the institution, their previous loans having been properly repaid.

Karia, standing in the middle of the picture, is the group's leader and farms groundnuts. She plans to use her loan to buy small agricultural equipment, agricultural inputs and seeds, and to pay for the labourers that she needs to maintain 1 hectare of farmland. The harvested produce will be sold in her village and at the San market, to a customer base composed of men and women. She expects to make an average profit of 150 000 francs per crop cycle. This profit will enable her to repay her loan as well as to support her husband with the daily expenditures.

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.
