The women are collaborating with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso to carry out their farm work during the rainy season. They are on their eighth planting loan with the institution. And all the previous loans were correctly repaid.

The crop grown is: sweet peas, as is the case with SOUMBA, who is standing in the middle in the photo. With her loan, she intends to purchase some farm inputs and to cover the cost of plowing for maintaining: 1 hectare. After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village to a customer base composed of men and women.

She plans on making an average profit of 210,000 francs CFA per planting. This profit will enable her to repay her loan and also to help out her husband in covering day-to-day expenses.

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.
