Rose is a member of the Gihororo group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 39 years old and married to Jean, a trader. The couple have three children who are between 12 and 15 years old. They are all in school. In addition, she has 5 orphans in her care who are also in school.

Rose has been selling rice, potatoes, palm oil, etc. for six years.

This is Rose's 12th loan from Turame. She will use her Kiva loan to increase her capital and buy a lot of items for her store (rice, potatoes, palm oil...). She will re-sell them and make more money.

In the near future, Rose plans to concentrate on selling palm oil, her former business. She would also like to see her children study and complete their education.

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.
