This group is composed of women who are very active in their Banc Villageois, established in December 2009. They are all from the same district and get along very well. Their main enterprises are various small businesses.

Ousmane (seated on the far right in the photo), is the featured borrower of the group, and is a very dynamic woman. She plays a very important role in the progress of the Banc Villageois. She is 45 years old, married and the mother of three children (two boys and one girl). She has a stall in the market where she sells fruit and eggs, and has had six years of experience in this field.

With this loan she plans to purchase a supply of at least five sacks of pomme de liane (passion fruit) commonly called "madd." The rest of the loan she will use to purchase other fruits for resale in the central regions and in the capital. The income she earns from her business will allow her to save with the aim of buying a house for her children.

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.
