Aminata (the woman standing second left to right in the photo) is a great saleswoman of high-quality men's and women's plastic shoes. She hopes to use her loan to buy 585 pairs of plastic shoes for all ages in Bamako. She will then resell the shoes in Kanadjiguila on the street to a clientele of mostly women.
With this loan, Aminata expects to earn an average monthly income of 95,000 FCFA which will be used to reinvest in her business and take care of small household needs.

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.
