The group Salama Plus is the second community bank of Kisangani to have benefited from Kiva loans. The group is composed of 26 micro-entrepreneurs, including a member named N’sila B.. This city of Kisangani, located north of the equator, is in Orientale province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and it’s on the border with Sudan and Uganda to the northeast. The city was the victim of wars between two foreign armies in 2000.

N’sila sells palm oil, rice, and corn at the I.A.T market in the city of Kisangani. Since 2000, he has gained a fair amount of small business experience. Selling fuel was his first business with $20 in initial capital. Over the years, he changed businesses and has managed to establish a loyal customer base for advancing his business.

His ambitions are, first of all, to take business trips in the future with the aim of supplying the people of the city with sought-after goods. Secondly, it’s to build a house for his family. He obtained five loans from the micro-finance institution HOPE RDC, and he repaid them appropriately. Right now, his business generates a profit of $40 a week. Given the ever-increasing demand, the loan he’ll receive next will allow him to bolster his inventory of merchandise by purchasing food items of the same type.

N’sila is 36 years old, married, and the father of two girls and two boys, ages 8 to 16. Three of them are in school.

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.
