The MANKO solidarity group, consisting of twelve (12) women, was formed on December 14, 2008 at the end of training by the management committee of the Banc Villageois of TouB. Seras1, to which the group belongs. The group members are from the same neighborhood and have been working side by side for many years. They are involved in a lot of activities together, including tontines, meetings, etc. This justifies the name chosen for the group, "Manko", which means UNION. All these women are married with at least three children, and their ages range from 30 to 55. The various activities of the group include livestock fattening, selling firewood and charcoal, processing and selling peanut oil, and small trade. This loan will allow them to stock up on supplies and develop these activities.

Yaye Rama B. is in charge of the solidarity group. She appears at the extreme left of the picture, wearing a blue veil and shown in the inset. She is 50-years old, married and the mother of six children. She runs a small business selling soap, incense, and pagnes (colorful African cloth). Her new loan will allow her to develop and promote her commercial activities. Her goal is to increase her savings and contribute financially towards providing for the family’s needs such as food and healthcare.

Note: Binta B. was marked as absent as she cannot be seen clearly on the picture.

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.
