They are on their eighth loan with the Soro Yiriwaso microfinance organisation, in order to satisfy their customers' needs. Mme Awa - on the far right - sells beads for a living. She aims to use her loan to buy beads from which she will make necklaces, and sell them in people's homes and in the large central market. She sells to a primarily female customer base, and takes cash sales.
She aims to drive average monthly profits of 40,000 FCFA, a part of which will be used to repay her loan and its interest, and the rest will be put aside as savings.

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.
