The Jerusalem solidarity group was formed three years ago. It is made up of 12 women, all active in the Association of Catholic Woman of Louga parish. They all belong to the same church community and are actively engaged in parish affairs.

Mme Eliane N., standing at the right of the photo, is the group's leader. She is 51, a widow with three children, and cares for eight neighbor children. She has a small business selling fish, citrus, and palm oil. Her loan will allow her to buy more stock and to grow her business. Her profit will enable her to pay for her children's nutritional and health needs.

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.
