With the goal of increasing their business capital, the group members decided to join the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their third solidarity loan.
Ms. Awa (the woman sitting at the far left in the photo) is famous for selling children’s clothing of the best qualities. She intends to use this loan to purchase 80 outfits wholesale. She gets her supplies at the big market. Her sales are made to a customer base composed mostly of women.

She is counting a lot on the Soro Yiriwaso partnership to achieve her goals, which include expanding her business.

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.
