Thiané, the group leader, is a 46-year-old married mother of seven, with an additional nephew in her care. She works in vegetable sales, but on the side she also works fattening sheep. She has the advantage of over 10 years of experience. She is pictured standing at right in the photo, wearing a black and white boubou with a brown shawl, and holding a book.

She purchases vegetables in cities and re-sells them in her village’s central market.

Her loan will enable her to grow her sales business, as well as to purchase sheep for fattening and later re-selling.

With her profits, she will support her husband in covering expenses for the well-being 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.
