With the goal of building up their inventory of goods, the group members decided to turn toward the microfinance institution Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their second solidarity loan.
Ms. Ténin (the woman sitting at the far left in the photo) has a good reputation for selling Wax ’pagnes’ (the colorful cloth of western Africa). She intends to use this loan to purchase 20 lengths of ‘pagne’ cloth. She gets her supplies at the big market. Her sales are made by hawking, and sometime by special order, to a customer base composed mostly of Sikoroni women.
With this loan, Ms. Ténin plans on making an average monthly profit of 40,000 francs CFA that will be used for ensuring her children’s education and healthcare.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
