The Banc Villageois to which this borrowers’ group belongs has been in existence since December 16, 2011. This group is composed of 39 women living in the same village. Their main business activity is processing seafood as well as retailing.

Binta Abdou, the star borrower of the group, is 28 years old. She is married and has four children. She processes seafood at the seaside in her village. She is standing on the right wearing a blue and white sweater, raising her left hand.

Every day she buys three cases of fish at 5,000 West African francs each. She resells part of it and smokes the rest. Her loan will help her buy more cases of fish to smoke in order to maximize her revenues. She would like to reinvest her revenues in order to increase her earning capacity and bolster her savings, so as to be financially independent.

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.
