The group named Bokk Jom was created 2 and a half years ago, at the same time when the communal bank to which they belong was created. It is made up of 28 women who live in the same quarter. Their principal activity is a small business.

Mrs. Codou S., pictured above the crow, is the leader of the group. She is 48 years old. She is a widow and she lives with her 7 children.

She has a business selling fresh and candied fish. She manages her business very well, following 5 years of experience.

Her new loan is in the amount of 500.000 francs and she will increase the quantity of merchandise she purchases.

Since the passing of her husband, the income generated from this small business has permitted her to support her children, purchasing every month their food and paying the water and hydro bills, etc.

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.
