With the goal of meeting the growing customer demand, six years ago the group members have decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso loan program. They are on their fourth solidarity loan. Maimouna, who is the group’s leader and well known in Keleya, excels at selling cereal pancakes. She plans to use her loan to buy for bags of millet and other ingredients. She stocks up in Keleya and nearby and sells her pancakes in Keleya, retail, for cash and on credit, to a customer base composed of men and women. She hopes to achieve a monthly revenue of 25,000 West African francs, which will allow her to repay her loan and reinvest in her business.
Dans le souci de satisfaire le besoin croissant de leur clientèle, les membres du groupe ont décidé d’intégrer le programme crédit de Soro Yiriwaso il y a six ans. Elles sont à leur quatrième prêt solidaire.
MAIMOUNA, qui est la présidente du groupe et très connue à KELEYA, excelle dans la vente de galette à base de céréales. Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter 4 sacs de mil et ingrédients. Elle s’approvisionne à KELEYA et environnants et vend ses galettes à KELEYA, en détail, au comptant et à crédit, à une clientèle composée d’hommes et de femmes.
Elle espère sur un bénéfice mensuel de 25.000FCFA somme qui lui permettra de rembourser le prêt et de réinvestir dans son activité.

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.
