The ten members of the Jiguisseme B Group are married women who are, on average, 38 years old and have three children. Most of them live in traditional families in the commune of Kafana, Sikasso district (third administrative region of Mali).

During the winter months, the women work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso, in order to improve their agricultural businesses. This will be their tenth group loan. The previous loans were all fully and correctly repaid.

Saran (standing second from the right in the photo) grows peanuts. She plans to use her loan to buy one 50kg sack of fertilizer, one drum of herbicide, and pay the labour costs to work half a hectare of land. She sells her produce in the village, in Sikasso, to both men and women, on a cash or credit basis. Saran expects to make an average profit of 75,000 francs CFA over the loan period, which will enable her to repay her loan and help her husband to provide for their day-to-day 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.
