In this Group: Nyele , Alima , Fanta , Tama , Bintou , Fily , Mariam , Sitan , Aby , Mariam
The ten members of the Djantoyerela III group are married women. On average, they are 40 years old and have five children. They all live in polygamous families in Bougoula, one of the villages in Sanankoroba (in the 2rd administrative region of Mali).

The members of the group collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to maintain their farming activities over the rainy season. This is their second loan with the institution.

Nyele, pictured standing second from the left, grows groundnuts. She will use her loan to buy farm inputs and seeds, and pay the labour costs to maintain 0.5 hectares.

After harvest, she sells her produce in the village, at the market, to both consumers and traders.

She is hoping to make 20 000 CFA francs per campaign and this money will help her to pay off the loan and help her husband with 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.
