This newly inaugurated village bank, on 26 september 2013, is made up of women who joined this bank as they are concerned about bringing about change in their living conditions. They have all lived in the same village for several decades, and have strong ties of solidarity among them. They are all involved in small businesses.
Mrs Tacko, 47 years old (seen standing at the far right with her hand raised in the photo above) is the star borrower of the group. She is married and the mother of two boys. She is very dynamic and contributed tremendously to the establishment of the village bank. She has a table in the village from which she sells various food products such as sugar, green tea, condiments and various cigarette brands.

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.
