This group was set up on 16th October 2012 at the same time that the Banc Villageois was created. It is made up of women who are on the second loan cycle of the Banc Villageois program. They are all from the same village and there is a strong bond of solidarity and mutual aid between them. They all run small businesses as their main activity.

Maïmouna, who is standing on the far right with her hand raised, is the star borrower of the group. She is married, 39 years old and mother to two children: a boy and a girl who are 19 and 14 years old respectively. She sells rice, sugar, tea and other diverse food products in the village.

With her new loan she is planning to buy two cartons of tea and sugar which she will resell on a retail basis: packets of tea at 100FCFA and sachets of sugar for 25 FCFA and 100FCFA.

She is planning to use the profits to help her husband to pay for their two children's schooling.

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.
