The Djiguitougou Group brings together women from the Koko district of the town of Koury. They all know each other well and live in large traditional families with their husbands, children and other parents. These married women have an average age of 37 and and at least two children each. This group of women sell various items, such as everyday food items and fritters. In order to expand the scale of their businesses, the group members decided to join the Soro Yiriwaso lending scheme. This will be their fifth group loan.

Sanata, the woman sat in the middle of the front row in the photo, is a member of the Djiguitougou Group. She sells everyday food items, such as onions, peanut paste and chilli. She plans on using this loan to purchase good quality products in large quantities, as and when she needs them, at the local market. She will then resell them to a mixed customer base. Whereas other members of the Djiguitougou Group are each planning to make an average profit of 130,000 FCFA over the course of this loan cycle, Sanata is planning on making 145,000 FCFA. In addition to paying back the loan, they will use part of the revenue to pay for their daily expenses and increase their working capital. They hope to further develop this partnership with Soro Yiriwaso so that their stock levels remain strong.

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.
