The Diamo solidarity group was established on December 4, 2007 and is made up of thirteen women who are inspired by a spirit of mutual assistance and run businesses primarily focused on trade.

Adama, the leader, is 38 years old. She is married and the mother of four children; her two nephews are in her care. She is very buS. in the trade of dried fish and makes the most of her more than ten years' experience. In the photo, Adama is standing at right, dressed in a white boubou [traditional African dress] with pink flowers and her right hand raised.

Adama gets her supplies at the port of the capital and resells them in the main marketplace in town.

Her loan will allow her to increase the quantity of dried fish in order to please her customers and increase her income.

Adama supports her husband in the expenses of the family and her children for their various needs. With her profits, she hopes to purchase a plot of land for her children, and perhaps even to build them a house.

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.
