Aïssatou (sitting on the far right with her left hand raised) is the top borrower of the group. She is 56 years old, a widow and mother to nine children (four boys and five girls). She has a spot in the market where she sells smoked and dried fish, and she has two years' experience in this field.

With this loan, she is planning to get fresh supplies of dried and smoked fish in Petite-Côte. She is going to buy two baskets of smoked fish for 40,000FCFA and resell it on a retail basis for 70,000FCFA. She is also going to buy a basket of smoked fish for 10,000FCFA and resell it on a retail basis for 17,500FCFA. She pays 5,000FCFA for the transport and handling costs. Each fortnight after expenses related to her business and daily expenses have been deducted, she ends up with a net average profit of 25,000FCFA for the 15 day period.

The profits she makes from her business enable her to save with a view to buying a house for her children.

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.
