Rosette is a 35-year-old merchant who lives in the town of Mumuri, in Gitega Province, in the middle of the country. For three years, she has been doing commerce in grocery items (cassava flour and a dried fish called ndagala). She is also a farmer.
Rosette attended school and reached the 6th grade. She is married to Sylvestre and is the mother of four children. Two of the children are in primary school.
The Kiva loan of 100,000 Burundi francs that Rosette obtained has enabled her to increase her capital to buy large amounts of grocery items (cassava flour and ndagala) to resell in order to make a large profit. Thus, she can meet her many needs.
She is a member of the community group "Sasagara".

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.
