The Begg Fallou solidarity group was started on December 9th, 2010; it is comprised of fifteen women who are neighbours. They are driven by a feeling of solidarity, of trust, and they have the possibility to meet any time prior to each monthly gathering. Serigne Fallou is their idol—the reason for which his name was given to the group.

The leader, Khady, is 28 years old, she is unmarried and has no children; she is a seamstress and handles colouration at the same time; she has a good six years of experience. She is standing at the right of the photo dressed in the yellow and brown square-patterned fabric with her hands crossed on her chest. She purchases fabric in the neighbouring town, then sews and sells back at at home.

With a loan, she hopes to strengthen her sewing and dying business so as to be able to earn large profits.

She wants to grow the scope of her business in order to better realise a more consistent level of savings and take care of her family in the future.

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.
