Created this September 18, 2013 on the occasion of its inauguration in the village's public square, this "banc villageois" counts on women within it who are determined to take on income generating businesses and to strengthen their capacity for financing. They have lived in the same village for several decades and sustain relationships of solidarity and helping each other. They have small shops.

Madam Asmao, 35 years old (sitting on the extreme right with her left hand raised), is the featured borrower of the group. She is married and mother to six children of whom one is a boy and five are girls. Her business is based on the sale of doughnuts made from mil [African cereal] flour in the weekly markets and in the village.

With her new loan, she plans on buying two bags of mil to transform it into mil flour, 10 kilograms of sugar, and other ingredients.

The profits allow her partly to help her husband to take care of the needs of the family and partly to grow her turnover.

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.
