This group was created on May 16, 2011 at the inauguration of the local Banc Villageois. It consists of women who live in the same village. They are gaining experience in their respective activities through a greater understanding of the program, which is helped by the presence of a large weekly market (louma) in their village. The group members practice small trade, and they share a bond of mutual support and solidarity.

Mrs. Fatoumata, age 57, (standing at the far right, dressed in white and raising her hand), is the featured borrower from this group. She is the married mother of ten children, three of them girls. She also takes care of two of her grandchildren. She fattens sheep and goats that she buys on Thursdays at the weekly market in the village, and sells them later on. She has extensive experience of over 20 years in this activity. She plans to use this new loan to buy at least four goats at 12,500 FCFA apiece to fatten and sell at a later date.

She will use her profits to support her children and grandchildren' education, and to provide for their clothing, food and sanitary needs.

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.
