The "banc villageois" was inaugurated on 20 May 2003, and this group of very dynamic women has a long history of working with the organisation. The women all live in the same neighbourhood and are strongly linked by their history of mutual help. This will be their twentieth group loan. The group members are all small traders, agricultural product processors or raise poultry.

Harry (sitting on the far right of the photo, with her hand raised) is the main client and president of this group. She is a widow, and is responsible for seven of her children, four boys and three girls. She raises poultry, and is helped in her work by her sons. The birds are sold when they are forty-five days old.

Harry will use her loan to buy 200 birds for 150,000 francs CFA and poultry feed for 80,000 francs CFA. She will then sell the mature birds for 3,500 francs CFA each. With her earnings she will be able to improve the living conditions of her family and provide for their health, school and clothing 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.
