Jean is 42 years old, married, and the father of four children aged between 3 and 14. He has been active in his business since 2005. He runs a sewing workshop to the west of Kinshasa. Jean is dedicated to his business, which generates a profit of $160 per month. His business is the only resource of income he has to support his family. Jean has already received and successfully repaid nine loans. He is planning with the coming loan to purchase two rolls of good-quality fabric that are needed by his clients in order to generate more profit. His ambition is to open a larger sewing workshop in his environment.

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.
