This 'banc villageois' was created on April 22, 2007. It is composed of women sharing a solidarity out of their companionship for over five good years. The members would like to develop their revenue-generating businesses and thus improve their living conditions and to facilitate their access to consumer products. The main work of these women involves small-scale commerce. They also grow crops during the rainy season.

Ms. Adama, (sitting at the far right with her hand raised) is the group's representative. She is 33 years old, married, and the mother of three children, including one boy. She is active in selling grocery items that she purchases at the communal market to supply her stall in the village.

With this new loan, she intends to purchase: a 50-kg sack of sugar, 2 or 3 boxes of tea, and a variety of other grocery items.

The profits from her work will enable her to increase her savings and to help her husband to meet the needs of the family.

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.
