Allah Kan Djidi Group
In this Group: Sanata , Kadia , Djènèba , Bintou , Djènèba , Arakiatou
The six women in the Allah Kan Djidi group are married, mainly in polygamous families. They average 35 years of age with three children. They all live in the village of N'gara in the region of Ségou (4th administrative region of Mali) and became acquainted through neighborhood ties and kinship.

They are petty traders of grain cereals, fruits, vegetables, etc. In order to expand their business, the group decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso and are in their seventh group loan cycle.

Mrs. Djeneba (sitting in second position from left to right on the photo) is a major rice seller in the village of N'gara and its surroundings. She plans to use her loan to buy four bags of paddy rice (whole-grain) from farmers at the Konodimini fair.

She then steams, hulls and strips the rice of its bran before retailing it for cash and credit through home delivery and at the Konodimini fair to both men and women customers.

Mrs. Djeneba hopes to achieve an average monthly profit of 20,000 FCFA with this loan, which will be reinvested in the business and used for the upkeeping of the household children.

Just like the other women in the group, Mrs Djeneba aims to increase the volume of her business in partnership with Soro Yiriwaso.

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.
