Yacine, seated at the far left in the photo and raising her hand, is the featured borrower. She is married and the mother of eight children, including three girls. She runs a small restaurant in which she serves breakfast in the morning. She also resells palm oil which she buys from producers and resells in 1-liter bottles, on a retail basis.

She plans to use her new loan to buy one box of spaghetti, one bag of onions, one 5-liter can of refined oil and some seasonings to prepare her dishes.

With her profits, she will contribute to the educational needs of her school-aged children and take care of their basic needs.

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.
