Created on July 12, 2008, this group within the 'banc villageois' is composed of 26 women who are all active in revenue-generating businesses, especially in small-scale commerce and producing food products. The women live in the same village and maintain ties of solidarity to a high degree.

Ms. Diénabou (sitting at the far left with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 53 years old, married, and the mother of five children (two boys and three girls). She is active in the processing of grains: millet and corn for making couscous to be sold. She also processes hibiscus, ginger, and a variety of other produce according to the season.

With her new loan, she intends to purchase 10 sacks of millet at 5,000 francs CFA per sack; 10 of corn at the same price; a sack of hibiscus; 30 kg of ginger; 2 sacks of sugar; 4 basins; and 12 sieves at 300 francs each.

The profits earned from her business will help her to continue building her house, and part of the profits will help her husband to cover the children's schooling costs.

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.
