This banc villageois has been in existence since its inauguration on September 17, 2011. It is on its fifth loan cycle and comprises women who all live in the same village. They get along well with one another and are united by a good group's spirit. They are essentially involved in small retail business as well as market gardening during the rainy season.

Binta (in the standing row, at the far right of the photo, and raising her hand), is the group's featured borrower. She is 39 years old, married, and the mother of six children (four boys and two girls). She is actively involved in the sale of tea, sugar and other food products such as cookies and candies, which she buys in bulk quantities at the regional market.

With her new loan, Binta will buy three boxes containing ten packets of tea each, one bag of sugar and a few bags of cookies and candies.

She will use her profits to take care of her children's educational needs as well as her own needs.

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.
