This Banc Villageois was established on July 28, 2009 when it was inaugurated. It is made up of women who share values of solidarity and mutual assistance. They also share a common goal: to move their group forward through the loan program. Their main businesses are retail and transformation of farming products.

Mrs. Makouta (sitting on the left and raising her hand in the photograph) is the group's featured borrower. She's 62 years old, married, and the mother of seven children, three girls and four boys.

Her business consists in buying and selling kola and unrefined tobacco, which she buys in a neighboring country and resell during the weekly markets, especially at the large international market of her subregion.

This new loan will enable her to buy 20 kg of kola at XOF 1'500 per kg, and 3 kg of tobacco at XOF 6'000 per kg. Her profits will be in part reinvested in her business to bolster it, and in part used to improve the standard of living of her family.

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.
