The FASS DIOM solidarity group was formed on December 14, 2008 following the creation of the management committee for the Banc Villageois of SERAS1, home to the solidarity group. It consists of eight women from the same neighborhood, united in a spirit of solidarity, sharing and mutual assistance. The group regularly holds consultation and/or awareness meetings, tontines, visits between members, etc. It is a very dynamic group engaged, for the most part, in small-scale commerce, dyeing and food services. The new loan will help strengthen these activities. Along with regular repayments by its members, the loans are reimbursed jointly by the group without any difficulty.

Mrs. Mareme F. is the head of the solidarity group. In the photo, she is standing second from left, wrapped in a pink shawl with white dots and wearing a blue scarf on her head (shown in the inset at the top right).

She has a beef fattening activity, and she plans to use her credit to buy an ox, fatten it up and resell it at the end of a 5-month period. She is contributing to the improvement of her family’s living conditions, namely with food and healthcare.

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.
