This solidarity group is composed of 11 women who come from the same neighborhood. It was created on May 12, 2010. The primary businesses of these women are the sale of small items and fattening livestock.

Madame Souda, 30, is married and raising seven children, of whom one is a nephew whose father is deceased. She is standing on the right in this photo, dressed in light blue, with a blue headscarf, raising her left hand.

She fattens livestock, but also sells a few groceries. She buys her sheep at the weekly markets and sells them in the same place after having fattened them for three to six months. She has a lot of experience in this field.

With her loan, she wants to buy some new sheep to expand her flock so that she can make a lot of money when she sells them again, since she sells some at the end of her loan period so that she can reimburse the loan.

She hopes to expand her savings with the profit she makes. She helps to cover some family expenses so that her husband can better care for their children.

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.
