Xekh Niakh no. 27 is an offshoot of the Xekh Niakh group, a group which has made its main objective to fight poverty. In fact Xekh Niakh is a wolof expression which means to conquer poverty.

Subgroup Xekh Niakh no. 27 is managed by Mrs Sadio Guèye and comprises 6 members, all from the same family; the father is the only man in the group. They are asking for a loan of 500,000 FCFA to be repaid over ten months in order to finance their individual activities. This loan will allow Mrs Sadio Guèye, the president, to buy palm oil, brooms, and peanut butter, which she has been selling for three years in her neighbourhood. And the profits which she expects to make from this activity will allow her both to build up her stock and to cover her needs and those of her two children, who are 11 and 6 years old. Mrs Guèye who is married and 39 years old, thinks that the success of the previous loan that they repaid ahead of schedule has motivated the members of the group to ask for another loan.

The other members of the group are: Mrs Bineta S., the treasurer and their mother, who sells cloth, plates as well as juice and cream; Mr Papa Ibrahima N., their father, who sells spare parts; Mrs Tacko F., a perfume seller at the market in Grand Thiès; Mrs. Fatou Diop N., who sells cloth and stocks up at Rosso in Mauritania; and Mrs Dibor N. who works in a real estate agency and sells perfumes to her colleagues and customers.

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.
