Created on October 16, 2012 at the inauguration of the 'banc villageois', this group is composed of women from the same village who share strong ties of solidarity and mutual assistance. Their main work involves small-scale businesses.

Ms. Diénabou (seated at the far right in the photo with a hand raised) is the featured borrower in the group. She is a married mother of ten children, from 1 to 17 years old, including seven boys. She sells grocery items retail: rice, palm oil, and a variety of condiments and spice.

Her new loan will enable her to purchase two 20-liter containers of palm oil at 20,000 francs CFA each, 3 sacks of rice at 13,000 francs each, and various spices.

With the profits, she plans further supporting her husband in covering family expenses: education and the children's healthcare.

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.
