This group of 32 members is a part of the "banc villageois" which was created October 22, 2013. It is made up of members who live in the same area and surroundings. They all live well and support each other. Their main activity is small business.

Mame, featured standing on the right of the photo with her hand raised, is 51 years old. She is a widow and the mother of three children, one of whom is a son. She is in the business of selling wood and charcoal. She purchases one pile of wood at 55,000 francs CFA and 5 bags of charcoal at 6,000 francs CFA. She earns a profit of 500 francs CFA per bag of charcoal and 7,500 francs CFA for the wood.

The profits will help Mame to provide for her children and all of there needs, since she is the sole supporter of the family and does not want to constantly be requesting support from others.

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.
