The Sare Soune group was created on July 12, 2008 when their "banc villageois" formed. It consists of 39 women who all live in the same village. They have small businesses and do truck farming in the winter.

Mrs. Moumini (sitting in the first row all the way to the right) is the top borrower of the group. She is 40 years old and married, and the majority of her children no longer depend on her, except her 25-year-old son. She keeps a table in the village where she sells retail tea, sugar, onions, and seasonings. Each day, she buys 40 loaves of bread for 80 FCFA each that she resells for 100 FCFA.

Her new loan will allow her to buy a large quantity of vegetables in the east region of the country to resell in her village and in the weekly markets in neighboring villages.

Her earnings will allow her to increase her sheep livestock and to improve her family's living conditions.

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.
