The 'banc villageois' was created on 8th December 2012. It is made up of women who all want to develop their income-generating businesses, in order to better provide for their respective families. They have all lived in the same village for several years and share very strong bonds of mutual support. All the women are small traders.

Mariama (sitting on the far right of the photo, with her hand raised) is the main borrower. She is 22 years old, married and has a daughter and a son. Despite her relative youth, she is a very active member of the group. Mariama sells vegetables and various other food products such as sugar and green tea. She buys her supplies at the local weekly market. She will use the loan to buy a sack of sugar, green tea and a box of powdered milk.

Mariama will use her profits to increase the size of her goat herd, and help her husband provide for the expenses of their 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.
