This new "banc villageois" was formed on September 11, 2013 and is made up of women with a strong desire to follow the "banc villageois" program. They maintain strong relationships among themselves and help each other; they have all lived in the same village for many years. The women's principal business is operating small businesses and seasonal farming in the rainy season.

Sona, 31 years old (pictured seated on the far right with her left hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is married and the mother of three children, two boys and one girl. She is in the business of selling used clothing and dyed cotton cloth. With this new loan, she plans to purchase three lots of used clothing at 7500 francs CFA each and four units of dyed cotton cloth at 6000 francs CFA each. The profits will allow her to increase her savings and allow her to qualify for larger loans in future loan cycles.

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.
