The Wakilaré group was created in December 2007. It is made up of 17 women who all live in the same district and all get along well together. The women are all small retailers.

D., the woman sitting on the far right of the picture, is the group´s leader. She is 47 years old, married and the mother of 7 children. She has been selling fabrics for over 6 years, and would like to develop that side of her business. She also sells vegetables at her local market.

Le groupe Wakilaré est crée en Décembre 2007. Il est composé de 17 femmes qui habitent le même quartier. Elles ont une bonne entente. Leur activité principale est le petit commerce.

Madame D.(assise à l’extrême droit sur la photo) est responsable du groupe. Elle est âgée de 47 ans.
Elle est mariée et mère de sept enfants.

Durant ce cycle elle voudrait mieux développer son activité de vente de tissu. Une activité qu'elle mène depuis plus de six ans. Comme activité parallèle elle fait la vente de légumes dans le marché de son quartier.

Son nouveau crédit lui permettra de s'approvisionner en grande quantité en tissus pour la revente.

Les bénéfices générés par son activité lui permettront d’aider son mari dans la prise en charge de la scolarité et de la nourriture des enfants.

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.
