The members of the group sell firewood, cosmetic products, clothes and cereals. In order to replenish their cash supplies, the members of the group decided to collaborate with Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their fourth group loan. Assan, the woman sat to the far left of the photo, has established a solid reputation for selling firewood. She plans on using this loan to purchase one truck-load of firewood from the surrounding villages of Bamako. She will then resell this wood at market to a mixed customer base.

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.
