The SAINTE THÉRÈSE solidarity group was created on June 27, 2007. The group is part of the Banc Villageois of the catholic women of SAINT JEAN BAPTISTE, in Thiès. It consists of 10 women, all from the same parish, which bears the same name as the Banc Villageois (Saint Jean Baptiste). They organized their group by neighborhood and faith. They are actively involved in the various activities of the parish.

Mrs. Rose F., standing at the right of the photo and raising her left hand, is the head of the group. She is 49 years old, married and a mother to six children. She is also the guardian of three other children.

She runs a small business selling fresh fish, vegetables, dried fish, palm oil and peanut paste at the market. Her new loan will allow her to acquire enough stocks to increase her profits. Her goal is to help pay for her children’s tuition and for daily expenses. In the long term, she would like to build a house for her family.

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.
