The "Madina Marmiyal" Banc Villageois was created on July 9 2011, that day being its inauguration day. This PC 01 group consists of 31 women who come from the same neighborhood.

Farmata, the featured borrower, is 26 years old. She is married, without any children. She is actively involved in business and owns a sewing supplies shop where she also sells cosmetics. She is sitting on the right-hand side, on a bench. She is dressed in blue and is raising her left hand.

She buys her supplies (perfumes, shampoo, lotions, threads, buttons, ribbons, poplin, etc) in the capital city, Dakar and then stocks up and resells her products in her shop in Saint Louis.

Her loan will be used to buy a large quantity of cosmetic products and sewing supplies in order to boost her shop's inventory and to be ready for the religious holidays, a time of year during which she will be able to make large profits.

With her expected profits, she wishes to save some money. Those savings will allow her to become financially independent and to travel, for business purposes.

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.
