C1240 Rwambona 4 Group
In this Group: Odette, Alphonsine, Venant, Christine
Venant is 50 years old, married with eight children who are between 7 and 21 years old. Venant is the leader of a group called 'Rwambona' and this group is commonly known in the business of selling milk. Venant and his team have been in this business for about 6 years and the hours of their business are from 8 am to 6 pm every day.

Although Venant and his team have been in this business for about 6 years, their capital is still too low to expand meaningfully. To change this, they need to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company which will allow them to purchase a dairy machine. If this machine is bought, there will be a big increase of liters of milk to sell per day. If successful, this team hopes that they will earn more profits than previously and in addition to that, they will keep reinvesting for better financial stability.

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.
