Ce groupement est composé de femmes très engagées qui ont su développer depuis la création du banc villageois le 25 novembre 2003 en plus des activités génératrices de revenues essentiellement tournées vers le petit commerce, de bonnes relations basées sur la solidarité et l’entre aide.

Madame Aïssatou (assise à l’extrême droite avec une main levée), est l’emprunteuse vedette de ce groupe. Elle est âgée 44 ans, elle est mariée et mère de cinq enfants dont trois garçons et deux filles. Elle s’active dans la vend de fruits selon les saisons. Elle achète sa marchandise soit chez le producteur le cas de la banane ou auprès d’intermédiaires pour les produits qui ne sont pas cultivés dans la zone.

Son nouveau prêt lui permettra d’acheter une dizaine de caisses de banane et divers fruits pour la revente au détail et par tas.

Elle compte avec les bénéfices réfectionner sa maison et accroître ses têtes de petits ruminants.

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.
