The Banc Villageois was set up and inaugurated on 17th September 2011. This group has just commenced its seventh loan cycle and is made up of women who all live in the same village. They all get on very well together and there is a good group spirit. Their principal activity is small-scale trading as well as market gardening during the winter season.

Kadiatou, who is sittling on the far right of the photo with her hand raised, is the star borrower of the group. She is 24 years old, married and mother to three children: one boy and two girls. She has a table in the village where she sells a variety of groceries: sugar, green tea, stock cubes and other diverse products. She gets her supplies every Mondaly at the weekly market in the area and then resells on a retail basis in her village.

With this new loan she is planning to buy sugar and tea by packets of ten; she will use the rest to buy two varieties of cartons of 20 packs of cigarettes.

With the profits she makes she plans to help her husband develop his income-generating activites and build up her savings.

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.
