Madeleine, the group's representative, is the one raising her hand in the photograph. She's a widow and the mother of four children. Two of them are boys.

She raises poultry at her home. She's not the only one in this field in her neighborhood, but she manages to get by. In parallel, she also fattens pigs, a business that she knows very well.

With her profits, she pays her children's education and puts away money in 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.
