Cécile-Elide N., 32, is a businesswoman who lives in the township of Kinama in the Town Hall neighborhood of Bujumbura. She has a shop where she sells various products--foodstuffs, cosmetics, and other small articles. She has been in this line of work for 5 years. She attended secondary school and got a diploma A2 in business management. Her husband, Kennedy N., is a driver. She is on her second Turame loan.

Cécile-Elide has four children, a son and three daughters, but she is also raising three other children who are close relatives.

She is requesting the Kiva loan to buy larger quantities of items she sells to her customers. This will allow her to earn more profit so that she can put aside savings and grow her business. She hopes to become a wealthy merchant, able to import goods, to buy her own house and her own car. She also hopes that her children will finish school successfully and lead a more comfortable life. She has always preferred Turame loans over those of other financial institutions because the interest rate is lower.

Cécile-Elide is a member of the community group called « Faida ».

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.
