Dekhale Thiossane De Kahone Group
In this Group: Fatou , Mame Lateo , Oumy , Codou , Ndiaye Ndour
The group called "DEKHALE THIOSSANE de Kahone" is made up of five women who are all married. They are members of a revolving savings association ("tontine) which gets together each month to collect dues and finance its members. Due to the fact that this revolving amount is small, they opened an account to save and take advantage of loans.

They sell foodstuffs, out of their homes in the case of certain of the women and at the market in other cases. The president of the group (who is raising her hand) is the mother of four children, of whom two are attending school. Her business allows her to cover their school fees and to help her husband with expenses for the family. In order to bolster their small businesses' working capital, the group is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs to buy foodstuffs.

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.
