Jam Bugum 3 Group
Having come together as a group, these five illiterate women used their first loan of 500 000 CFA to start a business raising cattle in their village. Two (2) other loans of 500 000 CFA allowed them to increase their production capacity. Each of the women are given one ox which she raises alone. The income drawn from this business serves to improve the daily meals and pay for the medical costs of their children.

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.
