In this Group: Awa Peulh, Amie Gora
The group of the West Sikilo banc villageois was established in 1998. It is made up of courageous women who participate in small businesses.

Mrs. Awa (seated at right [in the photo]) is the featured borrower; she is 55 years old, a widow, and the mother of seven children (three boys and four girls). She purchases dyed cotton cloth in neighboring regions for 300,000 CFA francs, and also sells vegetables in the central town market. She gets her supplies for 25,000 CFA francs each week. These goods are resold for 40,000 CFA francs per unit, turning a profit of nearly 75% and making for a sizeable daily revenue.

With her profits, Mrs. Awa plans to see to the daily expenses, her children's school fees and care, and to increase her savings with the banc villageois.

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.
