Marenje Wire Group
In this Group: Simbarashe , Obrien , Memory , Norman
This group was trained in 2011 by PENYA and was supported with a start up kit for wire making after they realized that local farmers were traveling long distances to buy wire for fencing their plots. The business is doing well but the demand for their wire exceeds their supply capacity. Their goal is to expand their business by supplying wire to farmers from the nearby wards for fencing purposes.

PENYA assists borrowers with entrepreneurial skills training through the Start and Improve Your Business (SIYB) Program. PENYA also helps them form Village Savings and Loans Associations where they save proceeds from their businesses that will then become the future sources for additional loans and business investments. Finally, PENYA carries out mentoring and monitoring visits to ensure that the businesses are being run viably. Through linkages created with extension workers and some buyers, PENYA borrowers have access to further training in the production and selling of their produce.

About Practical Empowerment and Networking Youth Association

Practical Empowerment and Networking Youth Association (P.E.N.Y.A) is a youth-centered non-governmental organization founded and operated by youth since 2008. It works to address socio-economic challenges faced by youth in Zimbabwe by creating partnerships with them, their families, community organizations and government. Additionally, it empowers them through entrepreneurial skills training, savings group formation, support for youth businesses and small business management advice.



P.E.N.Y.A joined Kiva through our Experimental Partnership Program, and has therefore received a lighter level of due diligence. Accordingly, loans associated with this partner carry a higher level of risk than typical Kiva loans.

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.
