This group, created on July 16, 2008, is made up of women who come from the same neighborhood and are united by good social ties.

The group's representative, Fatoumata, is a 50-year-old married woman and the mother of ten children (five boys and five girls). In the photo, she is sitting at the far left, wearing a green flowery dress and raising her hand. She has been actively involved in commerce for a long time, selling fabrics.

With her new loan of 100,000 francs, she will be able to buy various fabrics, which she will resell for retail in her neighborhood.

Profits from Fatoumata's business allow her to take care of her children's financial, nutritional and educational needs. They also enable her to strengthen her savings with the Banc Villageois.

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.
