B. Harriet is the leader of a loan group called Kamu kamu. She is hard working and very friendly, and makes a living selling poultry and maize. She has been in this business for over 10 years, and is grateful that both parts of her businesses are doing well and help support each other. As a result, she has been able to buy cows, goats and plots of land, and pay her children’s school fees -- all from the proceeds of her hard work. She is applying for a new loan to expand her business by buying more maize and chickens to sell to her customers.

Additional Information

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.
