The ISLAM solidarity group was created in December 2009 on the eve of the inauguration of the SANTHIABA COK1 Banc Villageois. It consists of 12 businesswomen who give of themselves generously and share the cult of work. They are women who earn an honest living.

Mrs. Ndèye Mané DIAKHATE is the head of the group. She is at the far right of the photo, holding a bag and wearing eyeglasses. She is 32 years old, married and the mother of five children in her care. She runs a restaurant where she serves breakfast in the morning (coffee, bread, milk, mayonnaise, black-eyed peas, etc.) and “café Touba” (a traditional coffee beverage) in the evening.

With her loan, she plans to increase her stocks of groceries to better satisfy her customers and boost her profits. Her goal is to be able to support herself and help her husband with the family’s needs (health care, food and tuition for the children).

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.
