This group is part of a Banc Villageois that was created on December 14, 2008. It consists of 16 women who share a bond of solidarity. Their main activity is commerce.

Dior, age 48, is the group’s representative. She is the married mother of five children, one of them an 18-year-old boy. Her eldest daughter is 27 years old. Dior sells fabrics, handbags and shoes. On the photo, she is the lady standing on the right with her hand raised. She buys her merchandise in the capital and conducts her sales locally, in her own town.

Dior will use her loan to buy 150,000 F worth of fabrics and 50,000 F worth of shoes in an effort to increase her revenue. She hopes someday to become a prominent merchant.

She plans to use her profits to bolster her savings in order to qualify for more substantial loans in the future.

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.
