Group members are small retail merchants dealing in groundnut kernels and clothes. To increase their business stock, the group decided to work with Soro Yiriwaso and are in their second group loan cycle.
Mrs. Adjaratou (the woman sitting in the second position from left to right in the photo) is a great seller of groundnut kernels. She intends to use her loan to buy one basket of tomatoes, one basket of chili peppers, one bag of eggplants and three bags of groundnut kernels in Medine. Retail sales are conducted in Niomirambougou to a clientele composed mostly of women.
Madame Adjaratou hopes this loan will bring her average monthly profits of 60,000 CFA francs, to be reinvested in the business and used to meet the household's small needs.

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.
