The Tiaat solidarity group was created three and a half years ago. It is composed of 15 women, all from the same neighborhood. They are linked by ties of neighborhood, kinship and affinity. The group is part of the Nob Sa Jeker “Banc Villageois”.

Ms. Aida S. (standing right of the photo in black pants and pink sweater) is responsible for the group. She is 25 years old, married and the mother of one child.

She runs a small trade of incense and perfumes. She gets her supplies either from Touba (approximately 50 km) or from the capital of Senegal (Dakar).

Her new loan will enable her to improve her small business activity and promote it.

Her objective is to reinforce her savings at the “Banc Villageois” and support her husband in taking care of their family.

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.
