Djekassigui 3 Group
With the goal of purchasing tools and supplying themselves with farm inputs, the group members learned about the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their second farm loan cycle.
Ms. Bintou (second woman standing from the right in the photo) is a great leader of rainy season farm work in the village of Ouolobougouni. She intends to use her loan to plow her field, purchase some seeds and manure, and then pay young people to weed the field.
At the end of the rainy season, the produce is sold in cash to pay back the loan in order to have the income to care for the children and some for 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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
