In this Group: Djeneba , Fanta , Dady , Mariam , Gnamagolo
The Sindjiya group is composed of five married women, who average 34 years of age and 5 children. Most of them live in traditional conjugal families in TINGOLE, a village in the FANA subprefecture (DIOÏLA prefecture, region of KOULIKORO, Republic of Mali). They sell cereals, and got acquainted through bonds of neighborhood and business. In view of bolstering their businesses, they decided to join Kiva's partner, the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso, from which they are seeking their seventh solidarity loan. The previous loans included four agricultural loans, and were all repaid without problems.

With this loan, they intend to buy 1.5 ton of corn, 900 kg of sorghum, and 400 kg of beans. The products will be bought from producers in TINGOLE and in the surrounding villages, to be retailed for cash, to a clientele comprising both men and women. They foresee turning a monthly profit of XOF 8'000 (ca US$ 16) each, to be invested in other money-making businesses.

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.
