The members of the group JEKAFO 2 are married women averaging 37 years of age and six children each, all living in polygamous families in TIOLA, a village in SIKASSO (3rd administrative region of the Republic of Mali). The women are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to carry out their farm work during the rainy season. They are now on their second loan with the institution. The last loan was indeed paid back.

The crop grown is rice, as is the case with SALI, who is standing in the middle of the photo. With her loan, she intends to pay for plowing and to purchase fertilizer for maintaining 1 hectare.

After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village, at the SIKASSO market, to a customer base composed of men and women.

She plans on making an average profit of 130,000 francs CFA per planting. This profit will enable her to repay the loan and also to help her husband in covering day-to-day 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.
