This banc villageois was created on December 13, 2011. It is currently composed of members who live in the same village and share a spirit of solidarity and help each other with all aspects in life. As their principal moneymaking activity, they run small businesses and practice rain-fed crop cultivation.

Mrs. Fatoumata (standing on the far right), is the star borrower of the group. She is a married mother of four, one of whom is a girl. She is in retail: peanut butter, green tea, powdered sugar. She also makes beignets which she sells in the village. She enjoys her good experiences from her businesses, since she has been doing this for several years.

With her new loan, she is going to buy 5 kg of flour, oil, sugar, and 10 kg of peanut butter to resell. The profits will allow her to meet the needs of her family, especially when it comes to paying for school.

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.
