The Yeggo solidarity group belonging to the Banc Villageois in Gabar was set up on 14th May 2010. It is made up of 18 women who live in the same village and whose main activities are market gardening and small-scale trading.

Awa, who is in charge of the group, is 43 years old, married and mother to nine children who are in her care, one of whom is her nephew. She has a small market garden and has 20 years experience in this domain; she grows parsley, carrots, onions, tomatoes and cabbages. At the same time she sells food products, including her own harvested produce. She is standing on the right of the photo, dressed in a blue "boubou" (an African flowing dress) covered by a mauve shawl.

She buys her seeds and food products in the town and sells them at the village market; the harvested produce is sold at the weekly markets. Her loan will allow her to buy more seeds and products in order to increase her income.

She helps her husband to provide for the family's 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.
