The group leader, Awa M., is 33 years old, married, and the mother of five children.  She is the guardian of three others, who are her nephews.  A very energetic member and devoted to the Banc Villageois organization, she has a market garden business. And she takes on the responsibility to sell her produce in the regional capital, Ziguinchor.  Secondarily, she is developing a small business selling fresh fish at the weekly markets.   Her goal is to take part in improving her family's living conditions by buying school supplies for the children, their food, and their clothing. 

The group members' main work involves selling fresh fish and shrimp.  On the side, they are developing a small business selling palm oil and brooms made from palm fronds.  Their supply location is their village, and in general, they sell their goods at the weekly markets in their town.

For the sustainability of their businesses, the group members wanted to increase their ability to self-finance.  To do so, most of them were willing to join the Banc Villageois in October 2002.  Since then, their performance has been increasing non-stop.

This new loan will enable them to develop further their different businesses in order to obtain the profits for responding to family 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.
