Diouma's Group
In this Group: Diouma, Amy, Amy
This group of three women is part of the "banc villageois" loan association which was created on May 17 1997. It regroups members who live in the same village and those living in the surrounding area. The members have good relations and their income-generating activities are livestock fattening and commerce.

Amy, who is standing on the right and raising her hand in the photo, is 47 years old. She is a married mother of five children, of whom two are girls.

She will use the loan to buy 5 ewes and 5 lambs; she then fattens them for a period of five months before they can be resold.

Profits enable her to reinvest in her livestock fattening activity, and to satisfy her children's needs.

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.
