In this Group: Satou, Mame, Isabelle, Malado
This group of four dynamic women forms part of a banc villageois that they created in July 2008. Their main business is small-scale commerce and farming. Satou (the woman seated in the photo) is the featured borrower of this group. She is a widow, aged 62, and is a mother to seven children, five boys and two girls. Her business consists of buying sheep that she fattens for resale for two or three months. She also sells honey and peanuts following the season.

With this loan, Satou expects to buy seven sheep at 40,000 francs CFA a piece, and resell them for 55,000 CFA or more after she fattens them up for two or three months. With the rest of the money, she is going to buy peanuts and honey to sell. The profits will serve to take care of her children's health and food needs.

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.
