Awa's Group
In this Group: Awa, Yaye Tall, Naba, Satou , Hawa, Tamarta, Adja, Sounkar
This group is made up of 8 women who are very active in the “banc villageois” created on November 15, 2006. They all come from the same village and get along very well. Their main activity is small-scale retail.

Mrs. Awa (seated on the chair on the far right of the photo) is the star borrower of the group. She is 44 years old, married and the mother of two children (two boys). She buys and retails oil from her house where she has a small cafeteria, an activity she has been conducting for over 4 years.

With this loan, she is planning on getting her supplies from the weekly markets to resell in her village and the surrounding ones.
With 130 000 Francs CFA worth of merchandise (20 liter oil drums) it takes her about 10 days to exhaust her stock. After 10 days, she will often end up with a net profit of 7,000 francs CFA after deducting all her expenses.

The profit from her activity will allow her to save and to cover part of her children’s school fees and support her husband at home.

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.
