Allamine Group
In this Group: Kodie , Mariam, Djeneba , Haby, Soumba
ALLAMINE is a group from the association BENKADI de TIELE. It comprises five women who know one another through ties of kinship and community. The women average 30 years of age and three children each, and they have different businesses, such as trading in condiments and working in food service, just like KODIE, who is in the second person standing from the left of the photo. They live in large traditional families in TIELE, in Préfecture de Kati (Région de SIKASSO, Republic of Mali). They have been working in small-scale commerce for several years and are in high demand in their businesses.

Concerned about satisfying the growing needs of their customers, the group members decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso loan program four years ago. They are on their seventh solidarity loan.

KODIE, who is the group's president, is well-known in TIELE and excels at food service. She intends to use her loan to purchase a few sacks of rice and some condiments of different kinds (black pepper, tomatoes, onions, cabbage) for catering purposes. She gets her supplies in Bamako and locally from wholesalers. And she sells her food retail for cash or on credit to a customer base composed of men and women in TIELE. She is hoping for a monthly profit of 30,000 francs CFA enabling her to pay back the loan and reinvest in her business.

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.
