The members of the group buy and sell cereals, soaps, and condiments. With the aim of bolstering their working capital, they joined Kiva's partner, the MFI Soro Yiriwaso, from which they are now seeking their third solidarity loan (group loan).
Mrs. AWA (sitting in the photograph) is the one selling condiments in the group. She intends to use her loan to buy condiments (boxes of tomato concentrate, boxes of Maggi bouillon cubes, and onions).
She gets her supplies from wholesalers and retails, for cash or on credit, at her home and at the market, to a clientele comprising mostly women.
Thanks to this loan, she intends to turn an average monthly profit of XOF 10'000 (ca US$ 20), to be in part reinvested in her business, and in part used to help her husband cover some family expenses.
Les membres du groupe font le petit commerce, grains, de savons et de condiments.
Dans le but d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce, les membres du groupe ont intégrés Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 3ème cycle de prêt solidaire.
Madame AWA (assise sur la photo) est la vendeuse de condiments du groupe. Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter des condiments (boite de tomate concentrée, carton de cube Maggie et oignon ).
Elle s’approvisionne auprès des grossistes et effectue ses ventes en détail, au comptant et à crédit, à domicile et au marché, à une clientèle composée essentiellement de femmes.
Madame compte réaliser avec ce prêt un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 10.000 FCFA qui sera utilisé, pour être réinvesti dans l’activité et aider son mari dans certaines dépenses familiales.

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.
