The Solidarity group SOBBEYA was set up over 9 years ago. The group is made up of 11 women who all come from the same neighborhood. They have come together as friends and neighbors. The solidarity group is a part of the Kadior "banc villageois."

Mrs. Aminata S., standing on the left of the photo, is the group's leader. She is 44 years old, married, and the mother of 2 children. She has begun a small business selling firewood and palm oil. She gets her supplies in the villages and re-sells them in the town of Ziguinchor. She is quite experienced in this activity, which she has carried out for more than 5 years. With the new loan, she can increase her stock of merchandise (firewood and palm oil) so as to make more profit. Her goal is to increase her revenue so that she can better meet her family's daily 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.

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.
