The Sope Cheick Sadieye M. solidarity group was created 5 December 2007. It is made up of women from the same neighbourhood with the same religious faith. They got together through personal affinities and as neighbours.

Mrs. Fatim M. is the person responsible for the group. She is standing at the far right of the picture, wearing a large green “boubou” (dress). She is 59 years of age, married and the mother of three children. She also takes care of her three grandsons.

She is a craftsperson: embroidery, crochet, a tailor of “pagnes” (colorful West-African clothing fabric), and creator of bead necklaces. She has been performing these activities since she was a young girl.

With her new loan she will buy thread and fabric for embroidery work, and also coloured beads and nylon string to create her necklaces. Her objective is to bolster her savings and take care of her dependants.

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.
