This group was created on October 12, 2010, on the day the 'banc villageois' Dialicounda Naforé was inaugurated. The group is composed of women from the same village. Over the course of the seven past loan cycles together, they found out how to develop solidarity and mutual support. They all go to the area's international market to carry out their work in small-scale commerce.

Ms. Woury (sitting at the far right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is married and the mother of six boys. She is a vendor of wild taro root and yams, cooked and uncooked, according the customer's needs. She has good experience in this business, since she has been at it for several years.

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.
