To make peanut butter, the best peanuts are selected, roasted, hulled, and then crushed in a mill. The paste prepared in this way is ready for retail sale to a customer base composed mostly of women.

With this loan, Ms. Kandia hopes to make an average monthly profit of 80,000 francs CFA that will be used for reinvesting in her business. Her goal is to maintain this relationship with Soro Yiriwaso in order to have much more money.

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.
