At the heart of this group are a number of good and honest women who wish to improve life for their household. They all live in the same village. There is true solidarity between the women. Their principal activity is the production and local commerce of traditional soap.

Mrs. Seybatou (who is sitting on the far left with her hand raised), is the star borrower of the group. She is married with five children of which two boys, and is much respected within the group. She sells soap and rice.

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.
