They have been shopkeepers for several years and are very much in demand for their businesses buying and selling cereals: mils [African cereal], rice, beans, etc.

Due to the concern of meeting the growing needs of their clientele, the members of the group decided to join Soro Yiriwaso's loan program. They are on their third group loan.

Niagamba, who is the president of the group and very well-known in Dangassa, excels in the sale of cereals. She plans to use her loan to buy 3 bags of rice, 3 bags of mil, etc. She gets her supplies in Dangassa and locally and sells her products in Dangassa, for cash and credit to a mixed clientele. She hopes to make a monthly profit of 20,000 FCFA, an amount which will allow her to repay the loan and reinvest in her business buying and selling cereals.

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.
