Ms. Fatoumata (sitting in the first row at the far right) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 55 years old, married, and the mother of seven children (a girl and six boys). She sells various typical consumer goods. Her business involves purchasing soap by the box wholesale to sell retail in her village and at the weekly market.

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.
