The Bokk Liggey community group was created on the 14th of May 2010, the day the Gabar village bank was opened. The group is made up of eighteen women who are all from the same village and all rear animals and crops for a living. Madame Ndéye is the team leader, and is 45 years old, married with seven children. Her main source of income is rearing sheep, which she does alongside market gardening. She has over fifteen years' experience in this field. In the photo, she is standing on the very right hand side, wearing an orange shawl.
She purchases her sheep from the weekly markets and fattens them for 3 or 4 months, after which she sells them in the neighbouring village's weekly market.
This loan will enable her to purchase rams which she hopes to re-sell a month before her loan deadline, so that she can repay it. The profits that she generates from her business activities will enable her to boost her savings- her family's needs are looked after by her husband.

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.
