The SOPE MAME DIARRA group has been created six month ago. It is composed of eight women, all from the same village and aged around 50, except for the two women shown seated in the picture, Awa michel D. and Diore S., who are 30 and 32 years old, respectively. They each have at least two children. The village has a big weekly market which attracts thousands of visitors each time. This provides for ongoing commercial activity and contributes to the economic development of the village and its surrounding areas. The new solidarity group will allow the group to bolster and diversify its enterprise. Their line of business includes selling local cereals, seafood, peanuts and ice cream (for those who own a refrigerator).

Mrs. Fatou D., the group leader, shown on the photo on the right-hand side wearing a blue outfit with flowers, is 56 years old, married and the mother of nine children. She is very energetic and cultivates the solidarity spirit in her group. She sells sea food such as dried or smoked fish and oysters; she also sells charcoal. With her new loan, she would like to increase her stock in order to achieve a higher income and help improve life conditions of her family as concerns food, medical care and schooling of her children.

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.
