The ten members of the Ankabenkelekan 8 Group are married women with an average age of 38 and an average of four children each. They all live within traditional family frameworks in Fonfona, one of the villages of Koutiala, the third administrative region of Mali. They are collaborating with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution so that they can see through their agricultural activities during the winter period. This is their ninth loan with Soro Yiriwaso, with whom their previous loans were paid back in full. The group's main produce is rice and peanuts. The group's representative is Minata, the woman sitting in the middle of the front row in the photo. With this loan, she is planning on purchasing farming inputs, seeds and agricultural materials, as well as paying for the labour costs involved with hoeing two hectares of land. After the harvest, the produce will be sold on a village level as well as around Koutiala to a customer base made up of both men and woman. She is planning on making an average profit of 205,000 FCFA by the end of the season. These profits will allow her to pay off the loan. They will also allow her to aide her husband with their daily living 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.
