This new 'banc villageois' was inaugurated on September 12, 2013. It is composed of women who had to run revenue-generating businesses before joining the 'banc villageois' program with the goal of increasing their financial capacity. The women have all been living in the same district for several years and maintain ties of solidarity and mutual assistance. Their main work involves small-scale commerce.

Ms. Oudé (standing at the far right with her left hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 45 years old, married, and the mother of three children (two girls, and a boy). Ms. Oudé has much experience selling fabrics and clothing. She purchases her products from bordering countries and resells them on credit, payable in two equal installments.

She intends to rely on this loan to expand her business by purchasing large quantities of light-weight 'kartoum' fabric to resell by the 06-yard lengths.

The profits from her business will enable her to help out her husband in covering [family-related] expenses.

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.
