KEUR MAÏSSA G. is a women's promotion group composed mainly of women from the same village. It was founded in 2003, inspired by the solidarity and affinity that exists between the women. After the group had existed for seven years and the women had gained experience in group organization, they approached the micro-finance institution, CAURIE-MF, to make use of their financial services. Thus, on April 29, 2010, they became a Banc Villageois with the same name as their group and the village. They received their first loan on May 17, 2010 when they were inaugurated.

Three quarters of the members are married and have at least two children; the average age of the women is 40.

The President of the Banc Villageois, Madame Awa N., is 47 and has four children. She farms livestock and plans to use her loan to buy four goats, which she will raise for at least four months before selling them in the large weekly market in her village. She has been doing this for three years. In order to reduce feeding costs, she collects hay at the end of the rainy season and dries it so that it keeps better. Her goal is to help improve her family's standard of living by contributing to the cost of food, health care and clothing for her children. Her earnings also allow her to satisfy her own personal needs.
Le Groupe de KEUR MAÏSSA G. est un groupement de promotion féminin composé essentiellement de femmes issues toutes du même village. Il a été créé en 2003 sous l'influence de la solidarité et l'affinité qui règne entre les femmes. Après 07 ans d'existence et d'expérience par rapport à l'organisation de groupe, les femmes ont démarché auprès de l'Institution de Microfinance CAURIE-MF pour bénéficier de ses services financiers. C'est ainsi que le 29 avril 2010 qu'elle ont été érigées en Banc Villageois qui porte le même nom que le Groupe et le village.

Son objectif est de participer à l'amélioration des conditions de vie de sa famille par une contribution par rapport à la nourriture, la santé et l'habillement de ses enfants. Ses bénéfices lui permettent également de satisfaire ses besoins personnels.

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.
