This group was established on September 17, 2011 during the inauguration of their banc villageois. This group has just started their seventh cycle and is made up of women who live in the same village. They share a good understanding of each other and a good spirit. The group members all engage in small-scale commerce, along with garden farming during the rainy season.

Mariama (who is standing on the first right in the photo with her hand raised) is the featured borrower of this group. She is 39 years old, married, and a mother of three children, who are all girls.

Mariama sells food products (rice, oil, sugar) and other consumer goods (soap, detergent), which she buys and sells at retail in her village and surrounds. This new loan will serve to buy two or three packs of green tea, a sac of sugar, and different kinds of seasoned stock, which she will resell.

Earnings will allow her to meet her children's school and health needs, as well as her own 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.
