The Sainte Thérèse solidarity group began on the same day as the inauguration of the Banc Villageois of Sainte Anne, which hosts it. It is made up of 10 women who are from different neighborhoods but who come together each month for the operation of the Banc Villageois. Their businesses are very diverse: they raise livestock, fatten pigs, run small businesses, etc. Madame Louise Coumba D. (to the right of the photo) is the leader of the group. She is 36 years old. She is married and the mother of three children, who are in her care. She also cares for her two little sisters and a boy who is entrusted to her by her close friends. She has raised pigs for around 5 years. She slaughters the pigs as well. She buys adult pigs and slaughters them to sell the meat by the kilogram. Her customer base is made up of her immediate neighbors. This new loan will allow her to buy 5 piglets, which she will raise, and 4 adult pigs meant for slaughter. Her objective is to support her husband in caring for the family. This includes purchasing food, caring for the health of the children, and participating in paying for their education.

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.
