The SINIGNESSIGUI III group consists of ten married women who are, on average, 37 years old and also have an average of four children each. They all live in traditional families in Lobougoula, one of the villages of the third administrative region of Mali (Sikasso region).

They have joined the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to successfully complete their farming activities during the rainy season. They are on their seventh farming loan with this institution, and all their previous loans have been duly repaid.

Awa (the featured borrower) cultivates groundnut. In the photo, she is in the middle of the standing row. She plans to use her loan to buy farming inputs and to pay for the cost of plowing on one hectare of land (2.47 acres).

After the harvest, Awa sells her crop to men and women, in her village.

She is expecting to make an average profit of 120,000 CFA francs per season, an amount which will allow her to repay her loan and reinvest in her business.

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.
