Sabougnouman Group
In this Group: Mariam , Maimouna , Bata , Maimouna
The four women of the Sabougnouman group are all married in nuclear families. On average, they are 39 years old and have three children each. They all live in the Ségou Coura neighborhood of the city of Ségou and know one another through ties of neighborhood and kinship. The members of the group buy and sell wax "pagnes" (traditional African fabrics) and grains. Eager to increase their turnover, they decided to join the loan program offered by Soro Yiriwaso, with whom they are now taking their fourteenth solidarity loan.

Mariam (second from the right in the photo) is an important grain seller in Ségou Coura. She is planning to use her loan to buy four bags of rice. She buys her grains in Niono and sells for cash or on credit to a retail customer base which mostly consists of teachers.

With this loan, she is expecting average monthly profits to reach 25,000 CFA francs which will be reinvested in her business and used to take care of her children.

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.
