This group was established on the 27th of June 2008, when the "banc villageois" was inaugurated. It is composed of women who, despite the isolation of the village, have managed to be part of the program for five years and acquire a solid experience in the system. They all live in the same village and do small-scale commerce and rainy season agriculture.

Madame Coumba (standing on the far right) is the leader of the group. She is 49, married, and the mother of seven children. She sells vegetables, smoked fish, peanut butter, and various condiments that she buys from big distributors to resell in the village and at weekly markets in neighboring villages.

Her new loan will allow her to buy a basket of smoked fish for 25,000 f CFA and various vegetables for resale. The profit will permit her to share in covering the needs of the family on the one hand, and grow her savings on the other.

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.
