Ms. Antoinette (standing at the right with her hand raised) is the featured borrower. She is 49 years old and a married mother of six children, of whom two are girls, and four are boys. She is a woman with a lot of experience in the business of processing local products. She is also a vendor of pigs in her community and in a neighboring country. She purchases young pigs from villagers and fattens the pigs for about forty days. She then resells them at the right time or has them slaughtered for celebrations or religous events.
With her new loan, she is going to purchase over a dozen young pigs and some sacks of unshelled peanuts at 10,000 francs CFA and to pay the cost of shelling them for processing.
The profits from her business will enable her to grow her savings and to help in an active manner in managing household expenses.

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.
