In this Group: Diakoro , Mariam, Minata, Safoura, Sanaba
Badegna is a group of five women who know one another through ties of kinship and community. Their average age is 42. They are married, have five children, and operate different businesses, such as buying and selling condiments, as does Diakoro, and food catering. Diakoro is the person standing at the middle in the photo. The women live in large traditional families in Fanikodjalan, sub-prefecture of Ouelessebougou (Region of Koulikoro, Republic of Mali). They have been working in small-scale commerce for several years and are much in demand in their businesses.

Concerned about meeting the growing needs of their customers, the group members decided to join the loan program of the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso. They are on their first solidarity loan.

Diakoro, who is the group's president and well-known in Fanikodjalan, excels in selling condiments. She intends to use her loan to purchase different kinds of condiments (black pepper, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, and eggplant). She gets her supplies in Ouelessebougou from wholesalers. Accepting cash or credit, she sells her grains retail in Fanikodjalan to a customer base composed of men and women.

She is hoping for a monthly profit of 20,000 francs CFA, which will enable her to repay the loan and to reinvest in her business.

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.
