The five women of the group Layidou are all married in polygamous families. The women average 35 years of age and four children each all living in the village of Ouolobougouni, in Commune Rurale de Sakoiba (4th administrative region of the Republic of Mali). They know one another through ties of community, marriage, and kinship in the village. They have small-scale businesses involving cow's milk of all kinds (fresh milk, curdled, yogurt) and grains (beans, millet, and rice).

With the goal of increasing their business capital, the group members joined the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their first solidarity loan cycle.

Ms. Dado (the woman seated in front with a blue container in the photo) is a major vendor of milk of all sorts in the village of Ouolobougouni; she intends to use her loan to purchase 250 liters of milk from the livestock farmers in the village. The sales are made, cash or credit, to a customer base composed of men and women.

With this loan, Ms. Dado hopes to make an average monthly profit of 16,000 francs CFA that will be used for reinvesting in her business and ensuring her children's care.

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.
