She owns a small grocery stand and a restaurant. She has been operating this shop and restaurant for 2 years. She will use the loan to pay for an expansion to her grocery stand. Her business strategy is to use the food that is not selling quickly in her restaurant before it spoils. She is able to obtain good prices on her food products because she buys in bulk for use in her stand and restaurant.

Ida has received 1 previous loan from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. She hopes to grow her grocery stand and restaurant into large businesses where she can employ many people. She wants her business success to aid her children in their studies.

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.
