Liliane has been providing battery recharge services for three years.

This is her fifth loan with Turame. With this loan, financed by Kiva, she will increase her capital and buy machine load and six tablets on which the machine and the batteries will be placed. This will make her work easier and, in turn, will allow her to earn more.

In the coming years, she would like to have her own workspace and continue to see her children go to school.

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.
