She has been selling grocery items (rice, manioc and corn flour, palm oil etc) for two years.
She is on her 12th loan with Turame. With the Kiva loan that she has obtained, she will bolster her capital and buy more groceries for her store (rice, a case of lemonade etc) in order to earn more.

In the years to come, she would like to strengthen her business in order to make enough living to support her family even in the absence of her husband, and provide a “nest egg” to her children. She would also like to see her students study in order to make a living.

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.
