This group belongs to the Diadiordé Banc Villageois and was set up on 30th December 2009. It is made up of women who are from the same village. The PC1 group comprises 20 women who get on well together and are all traders.

Walty who is the star borrower is 31 years old, married and mother to three daughters. She has a small business selling vegetables and also fattens oxen. She has three years' experience. She is standing on the right of the photo wearing a mutlicoloured "wax" (highly decorative African outfit) with her left hand raised.

She gets her supplies of vegetables (turnips, carrots, aubergines, potatoes) in Thiamène and Coki, and resells them at the village market.

She plans to buy three oxen for fattening with her loan and also hopes to bring in a significant income on selling them in the coming months.

With the profits she makes she will pay for the schooling of one of her daughters, who is studying at the Koranic school, as well as for clothing. She will save the rest in her account with the Banc Villageois and also provide her 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.
