This group and the "banc villageois" were created on 4th July 2002. The group is made up of women who have a lot of experience with the "banc villageois" programme. This will be their twenty-second loan with the field partner.

The women all come from the same village and have very strong ties as a result of working together and helping one another. They work as small traders and also in rain-fed agriculture.

Diabou (sitting on the far right of the photo, with her hand raised) is the loan representative. She is 55 years old, married and has four children, two boys and two girls. She sells peanut paste at the regional, international market. She buys the finished product from her friends who have processed the peanuts. She then sells the paste wholesale by the bucket, or in small quantities.

Diabou will use her loan to buy at least five buckets (at 10,000 francs CFA) to be used in the resale of the peanut paste. She will use her earnings to help her husband with the day-to-day expenses and needs of their family.

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.
