Sope Samasse Group
In this Group: Binta , Hawa , Haby Samba , Aissata , Fatiyel
The Sope Samasse group is composed of five women all of whom work as vendors. They have formed a group together because they live in the same house and are relatives.

The group’s leader, Mrs. Bineta, 35 years old, has been cooking food for sale for over two years. She is married with children. She sells cooked food in the evening, after her house work is done. She starts selling day at 6 PM and ends at 10 PM. Her efforts are rewarded as she manages to save some money and also help cover everyday household needs. Her future plans include opening an eatery along the national highway in order to take better advantage of her food business and attract a larger and more diversified customer base.

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.
