They collaborate with the microfinance institution, Soro Yiriwaso, in order to be able to carry out their farming activities successfully during the winter season, and they are on their fifth seasonal loan with the institution; the previous loans have all been repaid in full.

Assanatou, who is standing on the far right of the photo of the Wassa 2 group of women, grows groundnut. With her loan she is planning to buy two 50 kilo sacks of fertilizer, a container of weed killer, and also pay for labor to maintain 0,5 hectares of land.

Once harvested, the produce is sold in the village in Sikasso to a customer base made up of men and women, for cash and on credit.

Assanatou expects to make an average profit of 73,000FCFA per season. This will enable her to repay her loan and the interest on it, and also to help her husband with the 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.
