Mise en place le jour de son inauguration, les différents groupes de ce banc villageois sont composés de femmes très dynamiques dans leurs activités génératrices de revenu. Elles sont dans leur majorité dans le petit commerce qui est accompagné de l’agriculture sous pluie depuis plusieurs années. Elles vivent toutes dans le même village et partagent des liens de solidarité très solides.

Madame Aissatou (accroupie à l’extrême droite), est l’emprunteuse vedette du groupe. Elle est mariée, âgée de 41 ans. C’est une des personnes morales du banc villageois et joue un rôle important dans son bon fonctionnement. Elle s’active dans la vente de tissus qu’elle achète le plus souvent à la capitale ou dans un pays frontalier pour la revente à crédit ou au comptant selon le client.

Avec son nouveau prêt, elle compte acheter des étoffes de qualité légère pour la revente par pièce de 06 yards.

Les bénéfices lui permettront de mieux assister son mari dans la gestion du foyers surtout des frais scolaires des enfants.

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.
