They got to know each other through family and neighbourly relationships, and friendships. They sell shoes, condiments, groundnuts and various other shop items. The women of the Djiguisseme group are on their second group loan, having properly repaid the previous one.

She expects to make an average monthly profit of 5 000 francs, part of which will be used to meet her family's needs and part of which will be reinvested in her plastic shoe-selling business.

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.
