Victory Group
In this Group: Hellen, Kezia, Mary, Yeukai, Tracy
Hellen M., 35, is the leader of Victory Group, which has applied for a loan from Kiva partner MicroKing. Hellen will be buying winter clothing for her flea market. She is a single mother of 2 children; her oldest is attending school, and her youngest is two years old.

She specifically intends to buy winter wear for kids (track suits, jackets and jerseys). She has been operating the flea market business which is her sole source of income for the past two and a half years. She intends to own and operate a boutique in the future. In the interim she sees the loan proceeds improving her family's income and lifestyle.

Hellen can only sing praises for MicroKing and Kiva and hopes for continued support.

Additional Information

About MicroKing Finance

MicroKing's loans are guaranteed against institutional default (failure of MicroKing to repay Kiva lenders if the borrower repays MicroKing) by MicroKing's parent company: Kingdom Financial Holdings Limited.

More About MicroKing
This loan is administered by MicroKing Finance, Kiva’s first partner in Zimbabwe.

MicroKing’s mandate is to provide financial services integrated with advisory services and targeted training to the under-banked but rapidly growing Zimbabwean micro-enterprise sector. The intent is to mobilize the underprivileged as active agents in fighting poverty as well as to accelerate the country’s journey back to economic prosperity where Zimbabwe was once known as the “bread basket of Africa.”

Zimbabwean micro-enterprises are generally run by women and comprise a multitude of business types. Constraints on local production and manufacturing capacity have led to cross-border trading being the most common type of business.

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.
