It is made up of 14 women who come from the same neighborhood. Their businesses include running small shops and fattening sheep and cows. Ms. Yaya D. (standing in the back, to the right, in the inset) is the leader of the group. She is 55 years old. She is married and the mother of 5 children. She also cares for her granddaughter. She has run her main business fattening animals for 3 years. She buys the sheep and fattens them for at least four months before she re-sells them at the weekly markets or during big religious festivals. At the same time, she runs a small business selling incense, peanut butter, dyed cotton cloths, and shoes. This new loan will allow her to finance her fattening business and her shop. Her objective is to ensure the education of her one 17-year-old daughter, to strengthen her level of savings, and to contribute to taking care of the family's day-to-day expenses.

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.
