Mrs. Sounkar (seated on the chair on the far right of the photo) is the star borrower of the group. She is 36 years old, married and the mother of three children (2 girls and 1 boy). She buys and retails peanut paste from her house where she has a small cafeteria, an activity she has been conducting for over 2 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 185,000 Francs CFA worth of merchandise (buckets of peanut paste, bags of sugar) it takes her about two weeks to exhaust her stock. She often ends up, 15 days later, with a net profit of 24,000 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.

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.
