Claudine is a member of the Indatwa group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 32 years old and married to Emmanuel, a farmer. Together, they have 6 children aged 4 to 16, 5 of whom attend school.

For the past 12 years, she has been involved in the commercial activity of a variety of food products (sweet potatoes, manioc, beans).

This is the first loan she is asking for from Turame. She will use this loan to add the buying/selling of maize flour to her activity, through the purchase of two bags of flour.

In the future, she hopes to purchase a sewing machine and a plot of land.

Additional Information

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.
