To increase their working capital, the group members joined the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance institution. This is their first group loan.
Mrs. Djeneba (sitting first from the right) plans to use her loan to buy 300 liters of fresh milk from the farmers’ co-ops of San. She boils the milk and sells it at retail for cash or credit to a clientele consisting of both men and women.
Mrs. Djeneba hopes that this loan will help her to earn an average monthly profit of 60,000 CFAF, which she will reinvest in her activity and use to cover 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.
