In this Group: Mariam Chiaka , Assa, Awa , Mariam
The four members of the Jiguiya group are married women with an average age of 42 years and an average of 4 children each. They live for the most part in monogamous families in Siekourani, one of the villages of the region of Loulouni in the city of Sikasso, in the third administrative region of Mali. The women are on their 24th loan with the microfinance organization Soro Yiriwaso in order to meet the needs of their customers.

Mariam, pictured on the far left, sells fruits and vegetables. She plans to use her loan to purchase assorted fruits and vegetables which she will resell at retail at the markets in Loulouni, Siekourani, and in Sikasso. She will sell them both from a stand and door to door, for cash to a customer base made up of both men and women. She hopes to earn an average monthly profit of 52,000 francs CFA, a portion of which will be used to pay back the loan and interest, and the rest for her savings.

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.
