Allamine Group
In this Group: Kodie , Mariam, Djeneba, Haby
The ALLAMINE group is part of the BENKADI association of Tiélé. It consists of four married women who know one another through family and neighborhood ties. On average, these women are 30 years old and have three children each. They run various businesses such as buying and selling condiments and preparing meals, as is the case of Kodie. In the photo, Kodie is the first person standing from the left. The group's four women live in large traditional families in the Cercle of Kati (Koulioro region, Republic of Mali). They have been involved in small retail business for several years and their services are in high demand.

Eager to meet their customers' increasing needs, the members of the group decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan program four years ago. They are now on their sixth solidarity loan.

Kodie, the group's leader, is quite well-known in Tiélé and she excels at preparing meals. She intends to use her loan to buy a few bags of rice and various food products and seasonings (pepper, tomatoes, onions, cabbage etc.). She buys her supplies from wholesalers, locally and in Bamako, and she resells her goods in Tiélé, for cash or on credit, to a retail customer base consisting of men and women.

She hopes to make a monthly profit of 25,000 CFA francs, a sum which will allow her to repay her 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.
