Harriet K. is 42 years old and married with seven children, all still in school. She helps take care of two orphans. She is a friendly, determined and hardworking lady who has had a business selling firewood in Buramba for eight years. Before this business, Harriet was selling matooke (steamed green plantain). She changed because of limited competition in this current business.

She sells mostly to schools and homes. She had many customers because of her friendly nature and because the use of loans helps her to have stock all the time. She hopes to open up another store in the main town so that she could make more sales. Harriet needs a loan to help buy more firewood for resale.

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.
