Ngoyi is 43 years old and the mother of five children whose ages vary between 10 and 20 years old. All of them go to school. She has been active in her business since 2006 when she began running a drugstore. She joined one of Hope’s groups (a Democratic Republic of the Congo Microfinance Program) in 2009, and has received six loans since. Thanks to Hope’s loans, Ngoyi has diversified her business by adding the sale of corn flour and semolina. Her business has prospered and it generates a profit of $73 per week. With this loan, Ngoyi intends to increase the inventory of her business by buying some sacks of corn flour and semolina to meet her customers' needs and increase her income. Her ambition is to become a corn flour and semolina provider in her community. She works hard in order to achieve her dream.

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.
