They are on their sixth loan with the institution, the prior loans having been correctly reimbursed. The crop cultivated is maize in the case of Assatou, standing in the middle. With her loan she expects to buy farm inputs and seeds to maintain one hectare. The produce is sold right in the village, in the markets of Sikasso, after the harvest, to a clientele composed of men and women.

Assatou expects to make a profit of 175,000 F CFA per season. This profit will permit her to repay her loan and also to help her husband with daily expenses.

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.
