They are collaborating with the micro-finance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, with the aim of organizing their businesses better at the start of the winter season. The crops they grow include groundnut, millet and beans. They are on their eighth loan from the institution.

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.
