The "Bokk Diom" solidarity group was established on May 14, 2010. It is composed of 14 women, coming from different parts of the city, but bonded by links of friendship.

Ndéye Penda, age 51, is responsible for the group. She's married and the mother of two children. She also has her seven grandsons and nephews to support. She runs a small business selling cosmetics and clothing, and she's also a seamstress and hairdresser. In the photograph, she's on the right, dressed in a yellow "wax" dress and wearing a brown shawl.

She gets her supplies (body milks, creams, ointments, perfumes, and clothes) in the capital, and resells in her neighborhood. Her loan will enable her to diversify the products she sells, so that she can get a good income.

She intends to bolster her savings with the expected profits, but also take part in the expenses of the family, especially with respect to food.

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.
