Dieu Pourvoira 1 Group
In this Group: Olivia Rosine, Sylvie Florine, Martine, Annie, Mireille, Hortense, Angele, Gathe
Olivia, age 32, is single with no children. She represents the Dieu Pourvoira 1 group. Olivia has a small business where she sells phone cards and phone credit. She has been operating this business for one year. She will use the loan to buy more phone cards and credit from cell phone companies. In Congo, the majority of cell phones are not on contract. Instead, people buy minutes as they need them. The cell phone companies sell their cards and credit to individuals who then sell them to the public. Olivia's business strategy is to sell individual items as well as to sell credit in bulk. Her stand is located on a busy avenue on which many people travel.

This is Olivia's first loan from HOPE Congo. HOPE Congo and Olivia's group members are confident that she will pay the loan back. In the future, she hopes to be a large distributor of phone cards who sells to smaller businesses.

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.
