Ce groupe créé le 05 Mai 2009 lors de l’inauguration du banc villageois a su se maintenir malgré des conditions difficiles de marché concernant la vente. Il regroupe en son sein des femmes très engagées dans la gestion de leur organisation. Elles vivent toutes dans le même et partagent un esprit d’équipe et de solidarité. Elles ont comme activité le petit commerce et font la riziculture pendant l’hivernage.

Madame Binta (assise à l’extrême droite avec une main levée) est l’emprunteuse vedette du groupe. Malgré son âge avancé, elle reste une femme exemplaire et soucieuse du devenir de sa famille. Veuve de son état, elle prend en charge 04 de ses filles et 02 garçons et s’active dans la vente de divers produits alimentaires de la patte d’arachide aux condiments et autres bouillons culinaires.

Avec son crédit, elle prévoit d’acheter des paquets de bouillons et divers autres condiments pour la revente au village.

Avec les bénéfices, elle compte assurer la prise en charge sanitaire de ses enfants et la dépense quotidienne.

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.
