The Baax Yaye solidarity group was created on 5th December 2007. It is made up of 12 women from the same neighborhood, who are neighbors and/or have the same interests.

Mrs. Anta Bouya S., who is on the extreme right of the photo and dressed in a large orange "boubou" (African dress) sprinkled with white stars, is in charge of the group. She is 57 years old, married and mother to six children. She also has responsibility for her daughter-in-law and granddaughter.

She has a small business selling necklaces and jewelry made out of colored beads. She makes the necklaces herself before retailing them on a door-to-door basis. She has been carrying out this business for at least 20 years.

Her new loan will allow her to buy a large quantity of colored beads in order to make up more necklaces and other jewelry and make a more significant profit. Her aim is to boost her savings and provide for her family's 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.
