In this Group: Djènèfing , Maminè , Saran , Safiatou , Foussa , Kadidia , Fatoumata
The group Djiguissèmè 2 of Tema consists of seven women who are for the most part married in large traditional families. They are on average 38 years old with five children. They all live in the village of Tema, in the Koulikoro region (2nd administrative region of Mali) and they know one another as neighbors and through ties of marriage and kinship. They joined the SORO YIRIWASO microfinance organization to ensure that they have inputs on hand at the start of the rainy season, and this is their 3rd loan cycle. The group members plan to grow rice, groundnuts, okra and cowpeas.

Mrs. Kadidia (standing in the front row and holding a hoe) is an important groundnut farmer in the village. She will use her loan to buy one bag of fertilizer, 2 liters of weed-killer, and 50 kg of groundnut seeds. She buys her supplies at the fair of Bancoumana.

She's hoping that her 2.25 hectares will yield 20 bags of groundnuts, 30 bags of okra, 1 bag of cow peas and some cowpea straw. This cowpea straw, as well as a portion of the groundnut, okra and cowpea crops, will be sold to help provide for some of the household’s basic needs while the remainder will be used by the family.

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.
