Ada N., a member of the Abadahemana community loan group, is a 48-year-old merchant living in the Rugombo Commune in western Burundi. She has run a business selling beans at the Rugombo Market for 7 years. She was unable to attend school because she was orphaned. Her husband, Samuel Nduwimana, is a farmer. She has reached her fifth group loan cycle with Turame.

She has five children: two girls and three boys, aged 26, 24, 17, 15, and 7. Three of them are students.

She is seeking a loan through Kiva to increase the amount of beans she can sell, with the hope of realizing a larger profit. She prefers the Turame-Kiva loan system because it provides an easy and progressive repayment schedule with lower interest rates, as compared to other microfinance institutions, and also because the material guarantee is very easy.

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.
