Kankele Group
In this Group: Fatoumata , Aïssa , Fatoumata , Maimouna, Anna , Minata
The women of the Kankélé Group are polygamous. They are, on average, forty-four years old, and have six children. They all live in Missira I, and know one another because they live in the same neighbourhood. The women sell food ingredients (onions, shallots, cabbages, tomatoes, aubergines, parsley, etc), cosmetic products and run restaurants. In order to be able to build up their stock levels, the women work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso, and this will be their third loan.

Anna (standing on the far left of the photo) is well-known for selling food ingredients (onions, shallots, etc). She will use her loan to buy 400 kgs of onions and one tonne of shallots in Bamako, at the Niono fairs. She will then sell her products to various customers at the market.

Anna hopes to earn a monthly average of 75,000 francs CFA, which will be reinvested in her business.

She, and the other members of the group, would like to continue working with Soro Yiriwaso until they can afford to buy a plots of land to live on.

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.
