Djantoyerela 3 Group
This group grows groundnuts, millet, and rice. With the goal of buying small pieces of equipment and supplying themselves with farm inputs, the group members joined Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their second loan cycle of the season.
Bintou B. (the first woman standing on the left in the photo) leads farming during the rainy season in Bounou. She plans to use her loan to plow her field, buy seeds and fertilizers, and then to pay some young people to weed her field.
At the end of the rainy season, sales of the crops are made for cash to pay back her loan and to have income to support her children and a part of her family.

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.
