Solidarity group TESSITO was created in 2007, during the fifth cycle of the "Banc Villageois de GADAPARA". It is composed of nine women, all from the same neighborhood. They got together out of affinity and because they are neighbors.

Mrs. NGALA SONA S., standing on the right in the picture, is the head of the group. She's 56 years old, married, and the mother of seven children. She sells natural fruit juices, that she makes herself. She sells them at her home and at the central market in her neighborhood.

This loan will enable her to buy the ingredients she needs to prepare her fruit juices. With her profits, she wants to improve the standard of living of her family, by paying for food and for her children's school expenses.

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.
