The group Afia de Diatamine Saféré was founded in December 2008 with the inauguration of the banc villageois. There are 27 women in the group who are very engaged in their work, and there is a lively solidarity in the group.

All the women live in the same village, and they all work in small business. Madame Kadiatou (seated in the middle with her hand raised) is in charge of the group. She is married and is the mother of 6 children. She's very active in the transformation of local products - currently she's turning peanuts into peanut butter. She's 61, and has a solid experience in this activity as she's been doing it for many years.

This loan will allow her to buy peanuts in large quantities. She'll turn the peanuts into peanut butter that she'll sell in the weekly markets in surrounding villages. The income from her work will allow her to better help her husband with the family 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.
