This group was established on May 16, 2011 during the inauguration of their banc villageois. They are women who, in addition to living together in the same village, have gained experience in their respective businesses by participating in the program. The fact that their village is home to the large Louma weekly market helps. The group is bound by solidarity and support, and they all engage in small-scale commerce.

Mariama (who is seated on the far right with her her left hand raised) is the featured borrower for this group. She is 51 years old, married, and a mother of seven children, of whom five are girls and two are boys. She engages in various activities, from running a restaurant to the selling of palm oil. She sells palm oil in front of her restaurant, which is located in the market. She does well with this business, which she has done for over twenty years.

With this new loan, she plans to buy two 20-liter drums of palm oil at 900 francs CFA per liter, three sacs of rice, a 10-liter drum of oil, and different kinds of bullion, which will be used to make meals.

Earnings will help to support [her and her family's needs], at a time when her children are school-aged: housing, food, sanitation. She will also strengthen her savings.

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.
