The client, leader of the "Heri ya Mungu" business group, is an entrepreneur. She is 34 years old, married, and mother of six young children, who are all in school. Her husband is a State official.

She is a part-owner of a pharmacy. She started this business when she retired from a private clinic. She has been performing little revenue-generating activities like this for four years now. Meanwhile, she just received her third loan from Hekima.

This new loan will allow her to stock up on boxes of essential, generic medicine (paracetamol, antibiotics, aspirin, anti-malarial, anti-diarrheal, ointments, medicine containing glucose, etc.). She also hopes to open her own clinic and see her children grow up comfortably. The client would like to thank Hekima for helping poor women who do not have access to classic banking. It should be noted that some of the clients are carrying their babies.

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.
