They sell for cash and occasionally for credit, to a clientele composed of men and women.



They each expect to make an average monthly profit of 32,500 F CFA of which part will be put into savings and used for family needs, the rest being invested back into their businesses. They count on having more working capital so as to better satisfy their clientele and to be able to set up a venue for their service-oriented businesses.

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.
