The members of the group sell yams, charcoal, shoes, oranges and wax pagnes (highly colourful and decorative West African fabric). The group members decided to join Soro Yiriwaso in order to increase their business and are on their 14th group loan cycle.

Chata (sitting on the far right in the picture) is the group member who sells wax and damask pagnes. She plans to use her loan to buy 4 bolts of wax pagnes and 3 bolts of damask pagnes. She gets her supplies from the wholesalers and makes her sales for cash or credit, at home and at the market, to a retail clientèle made up of men and women. Thanks to this loan, Chata expects to make an average monthly profit of 52 500 francs, part of which will be reinvested in her business and part of which will be used to help her husband cover some of the family's expenditures.

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.
