Mrs Ba Oumou (the woman second from right to left in the photo) is a great shallot seller at the Pelengana market. She plans to use her loan to buy 400 kilogrammes of shallots from the producers at the Chateau de Segou market. She prepares them by removing the outer skin, washes them well, and then puts them into a plastic bag before selling them for cash or for credit to a mainly female clientele. With this loan, Mrs Ba Oumou hopes to make an average monthly profit of 32 000 FCFA which she will use to reinvest in her business and to provide for her children.

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.
