Mrs. Fatoumata (the third one standing from the left in the photo) is known in the Medien neighborhood as a vendor selling quality firewood and charcoal. She plans to use her loan to buy some cartloads of firewood and bags of charcoal. She sells out of her home, for cash, to a customer base composed of both men and women. With this loan, Mrs. Fatoumata hopes to achieve an average monthly revenue of 42,000 West African francs, one part of which will be reinvested in her business and the other used to cover the costs of condiments for her household.

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.
