The group "Association des Coiffeuses de KI n°2" comprises five women who are all involved in the same activity: hairdressing. They have come together to receive financial support from the UIMCEC and they are on their second loan.

Adama, the group's leader, is married and has a family. She will buy hair extensions and weaves so that her customers will not longer have to go elsewhere to buy a product which they can find locally.

Adama contributes to the family's daily expenses. Her dream is to open a large studio where she could earn some money offering training courses for future hairdressers.

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.
