This group is made up of very committed women who have been working together since the creation of the banc villageois on 6 June 2002. In addition to the income generating activities which center around small-scale commerce, the group has also developed strong bonds of solidarity and mutual aid.

Aissatou (seated on the right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of this group. She is married and a mother of five children, four girls and one boy, who age from nine to 17 years old.

Aissatou works selling fabric and ready-to-wear children's clothing. She procures her goods from merchants at the markets in the capital and resells them at either the "louma" weekly markets or for credit to customers in her village, who can pay in two installments.

With this new loan, she plans to buy ready-to-wear children's clothing in preparation for the start of school and the Tabaski festival.

With the earnings, she plans to help her husband with the family's household 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.
