Spès is a member of the Yagamaro group and lives in Gitega. She is 31 years old and married to Philippe, a merchant. The couple have 5 children together, aged between 7 months and 14 years, 2 of whom attend school.

Spès has been running a shop, selling items like bananas, beans and salt, for 7 years. This is her 14th loan from Turame. Her Kiva-sponsored credit will increase her capital and allow her to buy a lot of merchandise (bananas, beans, salt, etc.) to resell in her shop, so that she can earn more money. In the coming days, she would like to buy some goats so that she can have some manure, and resell the goats after they have bred.
Spès fait partie du groupe Yagamaro et habite à Gitega. Elle a 31 ans et est mariée à Philippe, un commerçant. Ensemble ils ont 5 enfants, âgés de 7 mois à 14 ans, dont 2 étudient.

Elle fait le commerce de boutique (bananes, haricot sel,..) depuis 7 ans.

Elle est à son quatorzième crédit à Turame. Avec le crédit KIVA qu’elle obtient, elle va augmenter son capital et acheter beaucoup de produits de sa boutique (bananes, haricot, sel,...) à revendre, pour gagner plus.

Dans les jours à venir, elle voudrait acheter des chèvres pour avoir du fumier et les vendre après leur multiplication.

Additional Information

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.
