Sabali Group
In this Group: Awa , Mariam, Korotoumou , Awa , Massini , Chata , N’Djinetio
Sabali Group is made up of seven married women who average 26 years of age and four children. They all live in traditional families in Tousseguela, Kolondieba Cercle (third administrative region of Mali) and got to know each other through bonds of kinship, community and marriage.

The members of the group buy and sell cereals, soaps, and condiments. With the aim of bolstering their working capital, they joined Kiva's partner, the MFI Soro Yiriwaso, from which they are now seeking their third solidarity loan (group loan).

Mrs. AWA (sitting in the photograph) is the one selling condiments in the group. She intends to use her loan to buy condiments (boxes of tomato concentrate, boxes of Maggi bouillon cubes, and onions).

She gets her supplies from wholesalers and retails, for cash or on credit, at her home and at the market, to a clientele comprising mostly women.

Thanks to this loan, she intends to turn an average monthly profit of XOF 10'000 (ca US$ 20), to be in part reinvested in her business, and in part used to help her husband cover some family 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.
