Inaugurated on 13 December 2011, the Diambars village loan group of Doumassou is on its second cycle. The members are very dynamic and display their group spirit in all situations. Their main activity is running small businesses.

Ms. Mariama (sitting all the way on the right) is the featured borrower. She is a widow and takes care of four of her daughters. She is a retailer of ice cream and various fruit juices at the private school in her area. She has run this business for over a decade. With this loan, she intends to buy two bags of monkey bread, one half-bag of sugar, and other ingredients in order to work continuously because of a lack of working capital.

The profits from this business will allow her to better provide for her family, both in terms of nutrition and other essential needs.

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.
