They collaborate with the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, so that they can carry out their farming activities successfully during the winter season. They are on their third seasonal loan from Soro Yiriwaso and the previous loans have been repaid in full.

Within the Sabali 2 group, Mafoune, who is standing second from the left in the photo, grows groundnut. With her loan she is planning to buy one 50 kilo sack of fertiliser and one container of weedkiller; she will also pay the labor costs for maintaining 0.5 hectares of land. After the harvest, the produce is sold in the village and in Sikasso to a customer base made up of men and women, for cash and on credit. She expects to make an average profit of 63,000FCFA per season. This profit will enable her to repay her loan and to help her husband with the family's daily outgoings.

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.
