She is married and a mother of eight children (five boys and three girls). She also takes care of eight of her nephews.

Fatoumata is a retailer, managing a shop in the village, where she sells rice, powdered milk, sugar, and other condiments. She has been doing this for more than ten years. With this loan she plans to buy three sacs of rice at 13,000 francs CFA a piece and three 20-liter drums of palm oil at 20,000 francs CFA each, plus pay the costs for transport which are 350 francs CFA per sac.

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.
