In order to strengthen their assets, the members of the group have decided to join the loan program offered by Soro Yiriwaso. This is their eighth agricultural loan.

Minata Moulaye is a member of the group; she cultivates rice and, in the photo, she is in the front row, kneeling, on the left-hand side.

She is planning to use her loan to buy seeds, fertilizer and to pay for the cost of plowing.

She buys her supplies in Fonfona and, after the harvest, she sells her crop for cash, at the market, to a customer base which comprises wholesale resellers and retail consumers.

Whereas every other member of the group is expecting to make an average profit of 100,000 CFA francs, Minata Moulaye is expecting her own profits to reach 110,000 CFA francs.

With their earnings, the members of the group will not only repay their loan but also cover some of their families' expenses.

They wish to strengthen their collaboration with Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their agricultural assets.

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.
