She is requesting the Kiva loan to buy bigger quantities of fruit for resale, which will allow her to earn more profit so as to be able to save and grow her business. She hopes one day to become a rich merchant and be able to buy her own house and her own car. She also hopes that all her children will be able to finish their studies successfully. Anastasie has always preferred Turame loans over those of other financial institutions because no collateral is required. She is one of the members of a solidarity group called "Vyizigiro".

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.
