This banc villageois is one of the most experienced, and one of its groups of women are masters of the program. The ties among this group were formed over the many years the women have been together. Their long-time involvement in the banc villageois has allowed them to develop a spirit of group solidarity which has enabled them to face many situations. The group members work for the most part in small-scale commerce.

Aissatou (who is standing on the far right with her left hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 56 years old, married, and a mother of four children, of whom one is a boy and three are girls.

Aissatou is very involved in the life of the banc villageois and in her business. She works selling sugar and ice in the villages following the days of the weekly market. To do this, she makes some of ice and buys the rest from other women. She makes packs of ice and sells them with the help of an icebox and empty bags.

With this loan, she is going to buy five 50-kilogram sacs of sugar and some packages of bags. She will also fix one of her iceboxes.

Earnings from this business will allow her to save and to actively take care of her family's expenses related to health, food, and her children's schooling.

Pour se faire elle fabrique elle-même une partie de la glace et l’autre partie est achetée par commande auprès d’autres femmes.

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.
