This group was created in August of 2011, the same day as the "banc villageois" of Bantagnel. Its female members are very involved in the development of their organisation, and they all come from the same district. They like to help each other and have a remarkable solidarity. Their main business is small retail.

Kadiatou (standing on the far right of the picture and raising her hand) is the group's featured borrower. She is 44 years old, married and the mother of 6 children, 4 of whom are girls and 2 of whom are boys. She sells vegetables at the Kolda market. She also buys millet, takes it through the various rinsing stages and then makes it into flour using the district's machine. In the afternoons, she sells peanut butter and palm oil in front of her home. She will use this loan to buy at least 3 bags of millet, 1 bag of sugar and 2 cartloads of firewood. Part of the profits generated by her business will be used to build her savings, part will be used to cover her children's education expenses and part will be used for the family's daily 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.
