Among the members of the BADEYA women's group, Nana sells dyed damask pagnes (traditional West-African fabrics). In the photo, she is in the standing row, second from the right. She is a popular seller and her products are in high demand.

With her loan, she is planning to buy some sets of damask pagnes ("riche" grade and other). She will then have them dyed according to the taste of her customers. She resells her merchandise for cash or on credit to customers of both genders. She buys her goods in Bamako and often at the Grand Market of the city of Sikasso.

She is expecting average monthly profits to reach 57,500 CFA francs, part of which will be used to pay off her loan and interest, while the rest will be put into savings.

Her ambition is to increase her turnover in order to better satisfy the needs of her customers.

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.
