The four members of the Sabougnouma group are married women, who, on average, are 36 years old and have four children. They live in traditional and nuclear families in Hamdallaye, one of the popular areas of Sikasso, in the third administrative region of Mali. They are on their tenth loan with the mirco-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso, which allows them to meet their customers' needs. Their previous loans have all been repaid correctly.

Aoua, standing second from the left in the photo, sells clothing with the help of the other women in the Sabougnouma group. With her loan, she plans to buy 20 lengths of pagne [brightly colored fabric]. She resells them door-to-door and through her family, for cash or credit, to men and women customers. She procures the pagnes in Bamako and resells them in Sikasso.

She hopes to earn an average monthly income of 24,500 francs CFA, of which a part will be used to pay back the loan and its interest while the other part will be put in savings.

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.
