The client Chiregano is the adviser for the business collective of Ntahalia. Chiregano is a dynamic young entrepreneur, 29 years old, and married with four children. Her husband is a taxi driver. Chiregano is a fruit seller. All the same, she also sells other food products (corn, yams, beans, etc.). Chiregano sells her merchandise in the market and sometimes from her home.

Chiregano started this business in her youth, with funds received from her grandfather. This new loan will be used to buy two baskets of plums, ten bunches of bananas, two baskets of oranges, avocados, etc.

Damage to the produce, rotting fruit, a lack of conservation technology, and insecurity in rural areas are major challenges for her business. Chiregano hopes to educate her children and help her business to grow. Chiregano would also like to give special thanks to Hekima for her micro loan support.

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.
