Batélé Group has existed since the opening of its Banc Villageois. Its name means "harmony" in the local language. The group members live in the same village. Their main activity consists in growing and selling vegetables.

Mrs Reine is 33 years old, married and the mother of four children. She is standing at the right-hand side of the photo with her left hand raised. She has worked as a farmer since her youth and has gained a lot of experience in this activity.

Mrs Reine will use her loan to boost her production capacity. She will buy high-quality seeds and insecticides to secure herself a good harvest. She will partly save her profit, but also use it to support her husband with family expenses.

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.
