In this Group: Juvenal, Nelie, Aurea, Celine, Caritas
Aurea M. is a 45-year-old merchant who lives in Rugombo Commune in Cibitoke Province, in western Burundi. She has been doing commerce in beans for four years at the Rugombo Market. She was a farmer before starting this business. She reached year 3 of primary school education. Her husband, Léon Wereshi, is a farmer.

Aurea was coming to the sixth communal loan cycle with Turame but is now going with solidarity loans. She is a mother of four children: two boys and two girls, aged 18, 15, 13, and 9. The children are all students. She is asking for a Kiva loan to diversify her staple foods, such as rice and corn, in addition to beans, which she purchases for resale to customers. With the Turame loan, she hopes to be able to support her children's schooling costs and to purchase a parcel of land for building her own house.

She is a member of the solidarity group "Urunani II".

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.
