Faida is a group of the Diamadjigui association in N'tentou. It comprises four women who know each other through family and neighbourhood connections. They are on average 42 years old with four children, and run various activities such as buying and selling condiments and clothing, which is the business run by Fatou, sitting first from the left in the photo. They live in large traditional households in N'tentou, in the Kati prefecture (Koulikoro region, Republic of Mali).
They have been involved in small business for several years and are highly sought-after for their work.
With the hope of satisfying the growing needs of their clientele, the group members decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan program. They are on their first solidarity (group) loan.
Fatou intends to use her loan to buy several dozen sets of children's clothing. She gets her supplies in Bamako and Ouelessebougou and sells her goods in Ouelessebougou at retail, in cash and on credit to a clientele composed of men and women.
She hopes to earn a monthly profit of 20,000 FCFA, which will allow her to repay the loan and 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.
