They collaborate with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution in order to better manage their agricultural businesses during the rainy season.

They are on their fifth loan with Soro Yiriwaso, having duly repaid their prior loans. They grow peanuts, which is what Sahali does, for example. She is the first one seated on the right in the photo. With her loan, she plans to buy agricultural inputs [such as fertilizers], seeds, small tools and pay the cost of labor to work one ha [2.5 acre] of land.

After harvesting, she sells her produce at the village and in Torakoloba, to a mixed clientele. She plans to earn an average monthly revenue of 24,000 West African francs at the end of the agricultural cycle. This revenue will allow her to pay off her loan and help her husband with everyday expenses.

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.
