Awa's Group
In this Group: Awa, Mouskeba, Oumy, Adama
Created on 10 December 2012, the banc villageois is made up of women who desire to make their businesses prosper. The group members have a good connection, and they all have just started their fourth cycle in the program. The women live in the same area and all work in small-scale commerce and the production of local goods.

Awa is a young, very dynamic woman, who has seen her business improve since joining the program. She runs a small restaurant in a busy alley, where she serves various meals and juice made from local products.

For the dinner service, she buys black-eyed peas for 600 francs a kilogram, green peas for 1,000 francs a kilogram, packages of spaghetti for 250 francs each, and meat for 2,000 francs a kilogram.

With this new loan, she plans to procure 15 kilograms of black-eyed peas, 20 kilograms of green peas, a box of 24 packages of spaghetti, and other ingredients.

Earnings, in addition to support from her parents, allow her to have the financial independence to take care of her 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.
