The solidarity group Sop Serigne Khadim Mbacké of the Darou Baïla Village Loan Group was created in December 2010 and is on its second loan cycle. It is composed of 33 women who come from the same area; they are neighbours, family relations, and friends. The main activity of the group members is the running of small retail businesses, but some of the members also make dresses while others prepare traditional hand-made oils.

Ms. Amy, the group leader, is 29 years old. She is a married mother of seven, and also has a nephew in her care. She runs a small business selling shoes and clothing and also makes peanut oil by hand - she has gained over ten years of solid experience in this field. In the photo, she is all the way on the right, dressed in yellow and green 'tissu wax' fabric with her hands on her lower back.

She buys shoes and clothing for women, men, and children in Dakar, where she also sells her oil.

With this loan, Amy hopes to strengthen her business by buying her goods in sufficient quantity and quality in order to satisfy her customers and earn enough income.

She intends to use the future profits to provide for her family, all the while thinking about increasing her savings in order to obtain a greater loan.

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.
