This group of 15 members is part of the 'banc villageois' which was created on December 21, 2009, and which brings together women who live in the village and in surrounding villages. Their main work involves commerce and raising livestock. The women maintain very good ties among themselves in solidarity.

Fatou, who is standing at the right in the photo with her hand raised, is 42 years old, married, and the mother of eight children, including four girls. She is invested in her business and has been working at it for quite a while. She has very good experience in this domain.

She is going to have made 30 pairs of shoes at 1,500 per pair and resell them at 5,000 francs per pair. With the profits earned, she will cover her children's schooling costs. She is saving money to ensure her children's future. With her previous savings, she was able to purchase a vehicle [for a taxi business] for her oldest son, and she plans to do the same for her other children.

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.
