In this Group: Nawa , Awa, Sali , Nassan , Minata, Maminata , Assanatou , Djenebou, Djatou
The HORONKANTIGUI group is made up of nine married women who are, on average, 43 years old with five children each. Most of these women live in traditional families in Kafela, a village which is very close to the city of Sikasso (third administrative region of Mali). Eager to meet the needs of their customers, they are taking their 17th loan with the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso.

Nawa (standing first from the left in the photo) sells charcoal and firewood. She is planning to use her loan to buy 50 bags of charcoal, each bag weighing 100 kilos. She buys her merchandise in Kafela and the surrounding villages. She resells in Sikasso, to both men and women. Her customers pay her in cash or on credit. She is expecting to make an average monthly profit of 26,000 CFA francs, part of which will be used to repay her loan and the interest, while the rest will be saved.

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.
