The borrower being featured is Ms. Binetou who is 36 years old. She is married with three children: two girls and a boy. She runs a sheep- and cattle-fattening business and has a parallel activity as a seamstress. She has accumulated five years' experience. On the photo she is standing to the right dressed in a "wax" pagne and a pink shawl, and is raising her left hand.

She buys her livestock at the city's fairground and sells them after five to six months of fattening.

With her special loan she wants to buy two sheep and two cows she will fatten and is counting on substantial benefits from the sale.

She plans to use her profits to expand her savings and support her husband in dealing with her family's daily 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.
