Reverien is a small business owner. This is the fourth loan he is asking for from ACB. He will use the loan to purchase green beans, soy beans, sorghum and maize, thereby improving his business of selling goats.

His strategy to grow his business is to have more capital, which will allow him to satisfy his clients as well as regularly re-pay his current loans, in order to take out more loans in the future. In the coming years, Reverien would like to become the owner of a medium to large sized enterprise as well as build a home for his family. With the profits earned from his business, he plans to continue to education and take care of his children.

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.
