The SAINTE JEANNE D'ARC solidarity group was created on July 15, 2010 in the 6th cycle of the Banc Villageois of the Catholic Women of Sainte Thérèse, to which it belongs. It is composed of ten women from the same church community. The group's main activities are small trade and raising pigs.

Mrs. Élizabeth S. (standing at the far left of the picture and wrapped in a pagne) is the leader of the group. She is 40 years old, a widow, and the mother of six children. She is also responsible for three other children entrusted to her care by her brother. She sells palm oil and beignets. She started this activity long before she became a member of the solidarity group.

Her new loan will allow her to boost production by strengthening her business. Her goals are to provide for all the children in her care, and to increase her savings at the Banc Villageois.

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.
