The women work at the market in Kanadjiguila, and sell food ingredients (onions) and clothing.

Wanting to increase their working capital, the group works with the field partner, Soro Yiriwaso. This will be their second group loan.

Mariam (sitting on the far right in the photo) sells onions. She plans to use her loan to buy ten sacks of onions in Médine. She will then retail them on foot in Kanadjiguila, mainly to women.

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.
