This group is made up of women who are all very active in their small businesses. This "banc villageois" was formed in July 2012 and is on its third loan cycle due to the members having mastered the "banc villageois" system. They are all from the same village and get along well with each other.

The women's main business is small shops. Ansatou (pictured standing on the right with her left hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 19 years old, married and the mother of 2 sons. Despite her young age she is a very dynamic woman and has two loan cycles to her credit so far. She is a reseller of spices and various other food products like green tea, sugar, refined oil, biscuits, and children's candy in the village.

With this loan, Ansatou plans to increase her stock of green tea by two packages, her stock of sugar by a half-bag, and her stock of candies and biscuits by containers for resale. The profits she earns from her business will allow her to put money into savings and to help her husband with the 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.
