The Sikilo Group was born with the creation of a banc villageois bearing the same name in 1998. It is made up of 27 women who live in the same neighborhood. Their primary activity is small business.

Mrs. Fatoumata (seated at far right [in the photo]) is the group's featured borrower. She is 27 years old, married and the mother of four children, three boys and one girl. She participates in the sale of potatoes, for which she pays 3,500 CFA francs per sack, and 6,000 CFA francs per sack of manioc. She gets her supplies from the local surrounding villages, which she then sells for 6,000 CFA francs per sack of potatoes and 8,000 CFA francs per sack of manioc. She benefits from her experience in this business, which she has been involved in for years.

With the profits that this business generates, Mrs. Fatoumata plans to increase her savings in the future to help her husband with various expenses and to provide for her children's school fees and care.

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.
