Launched on December 13, 2011, the Diambars de Doumassou Group's banc villageois [lending group], which this group belongs to, is on its second cycle. The members are very lively and demonstrate a group spirit in all situations. Their primary occupation is small business.
Mrs. Souracata (seated at the far right, with her right hand raised) is the starring borrower. She is a widow and has two of her daughters and one boy in her care. Very determined in her tasks and activities, she is an ice seller in her neighborhood, also delivering [for] several local bakeries.
Her new loan will allow her to diversify her business by adding the sale of ice cream. The profits will allow her to meet the consumption needs of her family and to strengthen her business.

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.
