Apresse Doumassou Group
In this Group: Raby, Marafin, Ramatoulaye, Mahawa, Marie Conce
This group was set up in June 2009 on the day of the inauguration of the Banc Villageois. It is made up of five women who all come from the same district. They are all on their sixth cycle of the Banc Villageois program. There is a good relationship between the various group members and their main activity is trading.

Ramatoulaye (who is sitting with her right hand raised) is the star borrower. She is 37 years old, married and mother to four children: two girls and two boys, the eldest of whom is eight years old. She sells locally manufactured shoes and dyed fabrics, and she has been carrying out this activity for more than five years.

She is buying a batch of shoes to the value of 150,000FCFA and fabrics to the value of 100,000FCFA. She sells the shoes for cash but the fabrics are sold on credit, repayable in two instalments.

The profits she makes allow her to increase her savings so that she can obtain a more interesting loan and also contribute actively to her children's schooling costs.

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.
