The Aldifooty group was created on the 12th of October 2010, on the inauguration day of their "banc villageois" Dialicounda Naforé. The group is made up of 16 women, who all get along well together and are all involved in small retail.
Aida, sitting on the far right of the picture, is the group's leader. She is 57 years old, married and the mother of 3 children. She sells peanut butter and palm oil at her local market. She is an experienced saleswoman with over 5 years experience in this area.
This loan will allow Aida to restock on peanut butter for resale. She plans to use the profits from her business to support her husband with the household expenses.

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.
