Aichata, standing on the left of the picture, is the Benkadi group member who sells fruit and vegetables. She plans to use her loan to buy baskets of fruits and vegetables; bananas, oranges, fresh tomatoes and aubergines. She resells them for cash to a clientèle composed of men and women. She gets her supplies from villages neighbouring the town of Sikasso and often at the Sikasso Grand Market. She expects to make an average monthly profit of 27 500 francs, part of which will be used to repay the loan and interest, whilst the rest is used to build up her savings.

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.
