This group bears the name COFEL which means Love of the next one, and has been in existence since the creation of the BV (banc villageois). It currently comprises 10 women who all live in the same village and share positive social values. Joséphine Maty (standing on the left of the photo with her hand raised) is the group leader. She is a married woman, 46 years old and the mother of 7 children. She has been a member of the BV since the beginning and she has developed a good relationship with her friends within the Banc Villageois. Joséphine is a retailer, active in the trading of salt, groundnuts and pigs. She has sound experience in this area, having worked in it for a long time. This latest loan of 50,000 CFA will allow her to purchase some salt, some stock cubes and also a pig for resale at the little marketplace in her village. With her profits she will buy school equipment for the children, and put some savings into her account with the Banc Villageois.

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.
