In this Group: Lamarana , Siga , Aissatou , Saye , Arame
The group called "BOOKU LIGGUEY de Kahone" is made up of five women who engage in dyeing of fabrics. They either prepare fabrics to order or they make dyed fabric to sell to their customers. This brings in a reasonably consistent income that they divide among themselves equally. They are all married and use their income to cover certain expenses relative to food, health, or their children's schooling.

The president of the group (who is raising her hand) is the mother of two children. She has a little shop in her home and displays her own products there. The group is asking for a loan of 500,000 francs to use to buy cloth and dyes and other necessary products for dyeing. Their ambition is to build a store where they can sell their merchandise.

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.
