The group "Gpf ndiobene bangadji" is a unified group made up entirely of women. Together they farm a communal field of millet in their region. The profit they earn from selling their crop allows the women to support both their own basic needs and those of their families, most notably their children.

The captain of the group (in the middle, wearing a red head kerchief) is the mother of a family of five children, two of whom attend school. She sells fruits during the rainy season and agricultural products during the dry season. The group is requesting a loan of 990,000 francs CFA to buy seeds and fertilizer.

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.
