Nsimire is treasurer for the Mufari group, a courageous entrepreneur, and mother of seven children, all of whom go to school. Her spouse is a teacher at a public school.

Nsimire sells foodstuffs. She stocks up in the countryside. She started this business with her own funds that she received from her husband. This new loan will enable her to buy 15 bags of corn.

Nsimire pays too much in taxes, when she travels, to armed groups operating in the regions where she goes. She would therefore like to thank Hekima for assisting small, non-bankable entrepreneurs by providing them micro loans. It should be noted that another client is holding her baby.

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.
