Created on 5 December 2007 during the inauguration of the banc villageois, this group is made up of 27 women who have experience in the banc villageois system. These women are all from the same area and share strong ties and support each other. They mostly engage in commerce and artisanal work.

Ndatté (standing on the far right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of the group. She is married, 45 years old, and a mother of five children, one girl and four boys. She buys fish at the market and resells them.

With this new loan, she plans to buy 50,000-75,000 francs CFA worth of fish each day, which she will resell to smaller merchants who then sell them in their areas.

She plans to use part of her earnings to support her husband in the schooling of their children and the other part to improve her family's living conditions and increase her savings in the banc villageois.

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.
