The solidarity group called Takku Liggey was created on May 12, 2010. It is composed of nine women who have small businesses or do hairdressing.

The group leader, Madame YAWMA, is 24 and divorced with no children. She manages a beauty shop that she was able to open using her first loan. In the photo, she is the person standing on the right, dressed in chestnut and orange, raising her left hand.

She has a good deal of experience as she learned early on to do braids and various hairstyles for ladies. The loans she has received have helped her to buy equipment and make her workplace pleasant, buying chairs, a carpet, a mirror, and other beauty salon accessories.

This loan will allow her to buy hair extensions so as to better satisfy her clientele and earn more money. With her earnings, she pays rent and helps her older sister, with whom she lives, with household expenses. She supports herself and hopes to put aside more in savings.

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.
