The group Niètaga is composed of seven women of the first district of the city of Koutiala who have been neighbors for a long time. They average 37 years of age and are married mothers of at least five children each. They generally live in extended traditional families and do different work (selling firewood, local beverages, ice, meals, fruit and vegetables, salt, etc.)

With the goal of expanding their businesses, the group members joined the Soro Yiriwaso loan program this year. Their loan amounts have gone from 50,000 francs CFA for the first loan to 100,000 francs for this third loan, which they plan to use to buy: a truck-load of firewood, sacks of sugar and of rice for making meals, and some salt. What the women offer is in great demand in Koutiala. Experienced in their sectors of commerce, they get their supplies in different towns and marketplaces and have diverse and varied customers.

With this new loan, they intend to realize an average monthly profit of 90,000 francs that will be used to repay the loan interest and to help cover common family 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.
