This group was created on May 8, 2009 when the 'banc villageois' was inaugurated. The women of the group have been able to acquire solid experience in the program, since they just started their ninth loan cycle. The group members live in the same village and are inspired by a spirit of mutual assistance and support. They are active in small-scale commerce and farming during the rainy season.

Ms. Saïbatou (standing at the far right with her right hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is 31 years old, married, and the mother of two children, who are 6 and 10 years old. Ms. Saïbatou is a very dedicated woman in the group and is active in selling palm oil and vegetable oil, which she procures at the sub-regions' international market in order to resell them in her village and at the weekly markets in the area.

With her new loan, she intends to purchase a barrel of vegetable oil and three 20-liter containers of palm oil.

The profits will be used to support her husband in managing the children's healthcare and schooling costs.

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.
