In this Group: Nouhou , Adama , Brehima , Seydou , Diakalia
The members of the Nadiegueton A group are married men who, on average, are 45 years old and have five children. They all live in traditional families in Flazambougou, one of the villages in Sikasso, the third administrative region of Mali. They are collaborating with the micro-finance institution Soro Yiriwaso in order to better carry out their farming activities during the rainy season.

Nouhou, who is standing second from the right in the photo, grows corn. With his loan, he plans to buy seeds and farm inputs and to pay the cost of labor to farm three hectares of land.

After the harvest, crops will be sold in the village and at markets in Sikasso to customers who are mostly resellers coming from the large towns.

Nouhou hopes to earn an average profit of 500,000 francs CFA per harvest.

Earnings will allow him to pay back his loan and also help his large family with their 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.
