In this Group: Kalou, Aziz , Fappy, Khamade, Nogoye, Ndèye Eliane
Mbelayiif is a mixed group with six members, two of whom are female. All of the group members are married, and each year they buy cattle which they fatten and resell on the market, in order to obtain more income. This business allows them to better provide for themselves and for their families. The head of the group (the man in the white scarf) is a father to four children. He has worked in this cattle-raising business for several years.

In order to carry out a new transaction, the group has requested a loan of 600,000 francs to buy cattle. The group members plan to expand their cattle-raising capacity.

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.
