The "Aminata Alé" Banc Villageois was created on July 9, 2011, that date being its inauguration day. This group of PC 01 micro-entrepreneurs consists of 33 women who live in the same neighborhood, belong to the same Muslim religion, and are either relatives, friends or neighbors. Their main activities are business, poultry farming, and the processing of fruits and vegetables.

The group's leader, Sokhna, is 62 years old, married, and the mother of one adult child. She has a shop and sells timber for construction and carpentry. She is also involved in poultry farming. In the photo, she is on the right-hand side, dressed in white.

She buys pallets of timber in Dakar and resells them in Saint Louis, her shop being located in one of the city's neighborhoods.

Her loan will be used to boost her business as she will buy timber for an amount of 100,000 F in order to meet her customers' needs. Earnings will be used as working capital.

Her personal and family needs are covered by the profits she makes from poultry farming. She hopes to increase her purchasing power.

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.
