Established on January 14, 1998, the "banc villageois" is made up of women who are very committed to develop their money-earning businesses. They all live in the same neighborhood and have been maintaining good-neighborly relations for a long time. Furthermore, most of them have vast experience of the "banc villageois" system.

Mrs. Néné Gallé (at the far right in the sitting row) is the group's featured borrower. She's married and the mother of one boy and one girl. She sells local products such as palm oil, peanut paste, and "néttétou" (a local seasoning).

She buys products wholesale and then send them to her daughter, who is married and lives in a central region, to resell them over a one-month period. Her new loan will enable her to buy 4 cans of palm oil, 2 baskets of 30 kg of "néttétou", and a few sacks of charcoal to resell.

Her profits will be mainly used to support her husband in taking sanitary care of their sick son.

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.
