This group is composed of seven women, united by good social and economic relationships. Anna is the group representative; she is 44, married, and the mother of four children, two sons and two daughters, aged 22, 19, 17, and 11. She sells shoes, boubous (wide African robes) and perfume. She goes to a neighboring country to buy her merchandise and after going through customs, comes home to sell her goods.

She does very well at this and her strong point is the fact that she knows a lot of people and knows how to negotiate to recoup her money. With her loan she intends to buy 50 pairs of shoes for boys for 175,000 f; 50 pairs of shoes for girls for 100,000 f, and 20 boubous made of dyed damask for 250,000 f. With her profit she pays her children's school fees and helps her husband with family expenses.

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.
