The Banc Villageois (Village Lending Group) that houses this group was started on November 19, 2004. It is made up of six members living in the same area who get along. Their principal activities are sales, livestock fattening, and food service.
Oumy, 37 years old, standing up at the right of the photo and raising her hand, is married and mother of 7 children (2 boys and 5 girls). She runs her store where she sells general grocery products. She has been in this business since 1996. The loan will allow her to replenish her store by buying new products. Concurrent with running this business, she practices pork fattening. With the remainder of the money, she will buy pigs which she will raise up to five months and resell them at the market.
The profits generated will be used for her children's education and the family's well-being.

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.
