Le Tresor 1 Group
In this Group: Blaise, Josephine, Christie Egide, Gardelain, Cornelie Nadege
Blaise is 45 years old and divorced. He has two children, ages 7 and 28, and his youngest child is currently attending school. For the past seven years, Blaise has operated a small chicken farm, raising chickens and selling eggs to vendors around Brazzaville. His business strategy is to deliver the eggs to his vendors, instead of having them come to him. Blaise also delivers eggs directly to the houses of certain clients. He has successfully repaid a previous loan from the Kiva partner HOPE Congo.

Blaise is requesting a loan as a representative of the Le Tresor 1 group. He will use his portion of the loan to buy chicken feed. Currently, he keeps his chickens near his house on a piece of land in the city. In the future, Blaise wants to move his farm to a new location a little outside of Brazzaville and be able to buy the land, build a house for his family, and have a larger chicken farm.

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.
