The four women in the Nienta group are married mostly in monogamous and polygamous households. They are on average 46 years old with five children. They all live in the Sabalibougou neighborhood in the district of Bamako. They became acquainted through neighborhood ties and their income-generating activities at the Sabalibougou market.

Members of the group are retail traders of fish, grain cereals, clothes and charcoal. In order to resupply by paying cash, the group decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso and are on their third group loan cycle.

Mrs. Mariam (the woman standing at the far left in the photo) has a great reputation in selling all kinds of fish. She intends to use her loan to buy 115 kilos of fresh fish in Kabala along the Niger River. Retail sales are for cash and on credit, at the market and as an itinerant vendor, to a mixed clientele.

With this loan Mrs. Mariam hopes to achieve average monthly profits of 95,000 CFA francs, to be reinvested in the business and used to ensure their children's well-being.

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.
