The members of the Kotognogontala 2 group are married women who on average are 46 years old with five children. They all live in polygamous families in Konzanso, one of the villages in the Sikasso municipality, in the third administrative region of Mali.

They have been working with the Soro Yiriwaso micro-finance institution to carry out their farming activities during the rainy season. They are on their fifth loan with the institution, and all previous loans have been repaid in full.

The selected crop is maize featuring Djelika, who is standing in the middle. She will use her loan to buy agricultural inputs and seeds to maintain one hectare (about 2.47 acres).

After harvest the crop is sold at village level and in Sikasso, to a clientele composed of men and women, for cash and on credit.

She expects to make an average profit of 105,000 CFA francs per growing season. This profit will enable her to pay off the loan, and also 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.
