The members of the Badenyakadi 1 group are married women who are on average 35 years old with 4 children. They all live in polygamous families in Saniena, one of the villages of Sikasso, the 3rd administrative region of Mali.

The women are working with the microfinance organization Soro Yiriwaso in order to keep their agricultural business going during the rainy season. They are on their second loan with the organization, the first having been fully repaid.

Afou, pictured standing second from the right, is in the business of cultivating groundnuts. With her portion of the loan proceeds, Afou plans on purchasing fertilizer and paying the labor costs for maintaining 1 hectare of land.

Afou's crop is sold in the village, at the market of Sikasso after the harvest to a customer base made up of both men and women. She hopes to earn an average profit of 100,000 francs CFA per growing season. This profit will allow her to pay back her loan and also to help her husband with 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.
