Mrs. Fatoumata (the one seated in the top row on the far left in the photo) is a well-known vendor of fruits and vegetables of all kinds in the N’gara village and the nearby region. She plans to use her loan to buy 20 baskets of papayas from village farmers. She resells for cash and on credit, out of her home and at the Konodimini market, to a customer base composed of both men and women. Thanks to this loan, Mrs. Fatoumata hopes to earn an average monthly revenue of 17,000 West African francs, which will be used to reinvest in her business and provide for her children’s needs. Her goal is to start raising small livestock thanks to the savings she will be able to grow with Soro Yiriwaso.

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.
