The members of the SABOUGNOUMA 2 group are married women who are, on average, 37 years old and have three children each. They all live in polygamous families in Nagnassoni, one of the villages of Sikasso.

They are working with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season.

This is their second loan with the institution; their first loan was well repaid.

Nassoun, second from the left in the standing row, cultivates sorghum.

With her loan, she is planning to buy some agricultural inputs and to pay for the cost of plowing on one hectare of land.

The resulting crop is sold after the harvest in the village and at the Sikasso market, to a customer base comprising men and women.

She is expecting average profits to reach 95,000 CFA francs per season.

Thanks to this profit, she will be able to repay her loan and to help her husband with the daily living 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.
