The Sop Naby solidarity group was set up on 27th December 2010 and is made up of twelve women who are relatives. Their main activity is trading.

Diewo, who is in charge of the group, is 54 years old, married and mother to six children. She is a dressmaker and has a sewing business as well as selling sheets. She is standing on the right of the photo wearing a white and blue tunic covered in a white shawl; she also wears glasses. She is an experienced dressmaker but has been trading for only just over a year.

She buys her fabrics in a large town, then makes them up and sells them in her town.

She is planning to buy a large quantity of fabric with her loan so that she can satisfy customer demand. She is also hoping to increase her income. The profits she makes allow her to provide for her children's various needs and she would like to expand her business.

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.
