The KAÏRABA solidarity group was created in March 2001 at the first cycle of the Banc Villageois of KADIOR, to which it belongs. The group consists of nine (9) women of varying ages living in the same neighborhood. They carry on activities such as soap making, petty trade and market gardening. They sustain a good level of savings. With the income they earn, they help their husbands with family expenses such as food, healthcare, children’s tuition, and clothing.

Mrs. AWA B., sitting second from the right in the photo and wrapped in a dark green scarf, is the head of the group. She is a 69-year-old widow with no children but takes care of five (5) children entrusted to her by relatives.

She is a soap maker. With the children’s help, she processes the oil into soap, which she then sells at the local weekly markets.

With her loan, she will buy barrels of oil to be used in soap making.

Her goal is to bolster her income in order to meet her personal needs and better provide for the children in her care.

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.
