In this Group: Dienaba, Goundoba, Djimato, Bandie, Bintou
This group is comprised of 5 women who are very active in the banc villageois created on November 15, 2006. They all come from the same village and all get along well. Their primary activity is small business.

Madame Diénaba (seated on the chair at right) is the lead borrower of the group. She is 49, married, and has three children (two boys and a girl). For more than two years, she has been buying and reselling peanuts.

She will use the loan to buy supplies at the weekly markets. She will then resell for retail in her village and in neighboring villages. It takes her 30 days on average to sell 400 000 F CFA worth of goods (bag of 50kg).

After 30 days, she often finds herself with a net profit of 35000 F CFA after all her expenses have been taken out.

The income from her business will allow her to save money, pay for a portion of her children's schooling, and support her husband at home.

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.
