This group of 26 women belongs to a Banc Villageois created on December 18, 2008. It consists of women with a strong social bond, and who practically all work in trade.

Suzanne, age 51, is the one standing at the far right with her hand raised. She is the single mother of five children, one of them a boy. She works in trade, and has a canteen at the college near her district where she sells thiakry (a West-African dessert made with millet), fruit juices, beignets and sandwiches.

She will spend all of her 25,000f to purchase the necessary supplies. The profits earned will help her to support her family and to improve her children’s living conditions.

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.
