Mrs. Yaya D., standing at the far right in the photo, wearing the white/red Boubou, is the group's leader. She is 56 years old. She is married and has 5 children. She is also taking care of her young daughter.

For three years, she has been fattening sheep. She sells them during large religious festivals. She also sells incense, peanut butter, thioup, perfumes, and shoes. She buys her stock either in Mauritania or Gambia.

Her goal is to contribute to her family's well-being. She is a co-wife, meaning that she contributes up to 20,000 francs CFA monthly to take care of the family's expenses. She manages the schooling costs for one of her daughters, aged 17.

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.
