This Banc Villageois was established on December 10, 2012. It is made up of women who are very eager to prosper their money-earning businesses.

There is a good connection between the members of the group. All women live in the same neighborhood, and their main business is retail and the transformation of local products.

Mrs. Fatou (on the right in the sitting row, raising her left hand) is the featured borrower. She's a woman very determined to expand her business. She's 29 years old, married, and the mother of one girl.

She's in retail, more specifically she sells fabrics and fashion accessories. She gets her supplies in one of the capital's markets, and resell on credit, asking for an advance corresponding to one third of the total price.

With this new loan, she will buy embroidered Wax fabrics and suits for men, in order to resell them during the year-end holidays.

Her profits will enable her to strengthen her savings and help her husband cover the family's expenses, especially those related to their daughter's healthcare.

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.
