The Kankeletigui Group is made up of eight married women who mostly live in monogamous households. They are, on average, 40 years old and have six children. The women live in Kanadjiguila in the commune of Mandé/district of Kati. They know one another through neighbourhood ties.

All the members of the group are retailers of cosmetic products (creams, hair extensions, lipsticks, perfumes, etc), fish, sheep, clothing and food ingredients. They all want to improve their stock-keeping levels so they work with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their third group loan.

Djénèbou (sitting on the far right of the photo) has built up a strong reputation for the quality of beauty products which she sells. She will use her loan to buy 40 boxes of hair extensions from wholesalers in the main market. She will then resell them in Kanadjiguila to women customers. Djénèbou hopes to make an average monthly profit of 80,000 francs CFA, which she will reinvest in her business.

In the future, she hopes to continue working with Soro Yiriwaso and be able to buy a plot of housing land.

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.
