The Dimbalante solidarity group was created in 1996. It is made up of 13 women who live in different neighborhoods but who meet every month for Banc Villageois activities. They are very close and share the same core interest which is the development of their local produce. The group is part of the Banc Villageois in Wango.

Mrs. Kine F. (standing on the left of the photo and raising her hand) is in charge of the group. She is 57 years old, a widow and mother to six children.

She raises chickens and is very experienced in this field, having carried it out for around five years.

Her new loan will allow her to buy 500 chickens, food for them and veterinary products.

Her aim is to contribute to her family's daily outgoings, increase her savings and 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.
