The Danaya group is made up of 5 married women whose members live mostly in traditional families and have an average age of 39 and, on average, 4 children. They all live in the town of Sikasso (3rd administrative region of Mali) and got to know each other thanks to family and neighbourly relationships, and marriage. The group members sell soaps, shea butter, yams, ginger and wheat flour. The group joined Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their business and are on their 4th group loan cycle.

Yassa (sitting on the far right of the picture) is the group member who sells wheat-flour fritters. She plans to use her loan to buy 2 bags of wheat flour, one bag of sugar, one 5-litre can of oil and a small box of bicarbonate. She gets her supplies from the wholesalers and makes her sales from her home and at the market, for cash, to a retail clientèle composed of children and women. Yassa expects this loan to enable her to make an average monthly profit of 25 000 francs, which will be reinvested in her business and used to support her husband with some of the family expenses.

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.
