Fatou is raising her hand in the photo. Her main activity is retail: she buys her goods in the city and resells them at home, in her village.

She plans to use her loan to buy some ready-to-wear "boubous" for children, some shoes, wallets (for 250,000 francs), smoked and dried fish, as well as seafood (for 220,000 francs). She has been involved in this type of activity for 15 years and she manages very well.

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.
