This group comprises 31 women who are very active in the local village loan fund, created in September 2007. They all come from the same area and have good relationships with each other. Their main activity is running small businesses.

Ms. Aïssatou (sitting all the way on the right) is the featured borrower. She is a 34-year-old married mother of two sons. She buys and sells food products such as sugar, oil, etc. She has run this business for three years.

With this loan, she intends to purchase crates of chicken thighs in the sub-region and re-sell them at the central market. The breakdown is as follows:
- Each crate of chicken thighs costs 12,000 FCFA and will be sold for 24,000 FCFA
- Each bag of sugar costs 24,000 FCFA and will be sold for 30,000 FCFA
- Each 20-litre can of oil costs 14,500 FCFA and will be sold for 19,000 FCFA
- Each box consisting of twelve 1-kg pots of tomatoes costs 18,000 FCFA and will be sold for 23,500 FCFA

After selling these items and subtracting the fees for handling and renting space, she finds herself with a weekly net profit of 20,000 FCFA.

The profits from her business will allow her to save money and take care of a portion of her children's education.

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.
