The "Sant Yalla Kahone" group is a solidarity group consisting of five women who support each other's business activities. They sell fabrics and also engage in dying fabrics.

They rented a house which serves as a workshop, showroom and point of sales. The revenue generated from these activities enables them to both support themselves and their families.

The group's president is a married woman, mother of three. She practiced dyeing for over 10 years and is the supervisor of the group. She also engages in embroidery and beading.

To bolster their working capital, the women are requesting a loan of 500,000 francs to buy fabrics and dyes. Their ambition is to open a large store in the center of town to better sell their products.

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.
