This group is made up of women who have a lot of experience with the institution's program and are very busy with their revenue-generating activities, in particular small trade. They all live in the same district, which promotes good relationships and a group solidarity which is much appreciated.

Diop (standing on the right in the picture, with her left hand raised) is the group's featured borrower. She is 31 years old and the mother of 3 children, 2 of whom are girls. A meticulous woman who likes to work, she sells beauty products, namely body milk and body fragrances, which she buys from suppliers and then resells to retail customers for cash or credit. She plans to use this new loan to renew her inventory by buying a few dozen bottles of body lotion, body perfume and room fragrances. The profits generated by her business will enable her to help provide her young children with an education.

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.
