Codou's Group
In this Group: Codou, Maguette, Farma, Fagueye, Daga, Ndioba
This group was founded since the first cycle of the local "banc villageois" loan group. It consists of six women from the same and surrounding neighborhoods united through social and professional relationships.

Mrs. Codou is a widow aged 50 and the mother of seven children, two girls and five boys, all attending school. She has been active in the trade of used clothing for nearly 20 years and has a good experience in this field. She is standing at the far left of the photo raising her hand and dressed in a white and blue boubou.

Her new credit loan of 500,000 FCFA will enable her to buy bales of cloth she will sell at retail prices in her neighborhood's market. The profits generated by her business will allow her to take care of her children's educational, nutritional and health-related needs.

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.
