The solidarity group Bokk Jomm has been created in 1995 following the opening of Banc Villageois of Wango to which it belongs. The group is composed of 12 women all living in the same neighborhood and sharing the goal of developing their businesses.

Mrs. Hélène Ndion, standing on the left in the back row on the photo, raising her right hand, is the group’s leader. She is a widow, 65 years of age. She is the mother of nine, but her children are all grown now. However, she has two granddaughters in her care. Her line of business is selling a couscous-type dish cooked with millet. She also sells millet flour and peanut paste. With her new loan she is going to boost her stock and purchase three bags of millet and two buckets of peanut paste in order to better meet her customers’ needs and increase her profit margins. Her goal is to help her children pay for groceries as well as to provide for her personal 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.
