In this Group: Ernestine, Andre, Edith, Gio, Tabia
Ernestine is one of the members of the group Bana Na Nzambe 2 (2). The group consists of five micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Ernestine is married with nine children whose ages range from 16 to 35 years old. She is very excited to be receiving her fifth loan from HOPE Congo after having successfully paid off her previous loans. She has had her business for around 28 years. Her business consists of selling auto parts and supplies. With this next loan she plans to buy more brake fluid, which is very much needed by the many taxis in Brazzaville. One of her strategies in her business has been selling in bulk to owners of multiple taxis. With these regular customers, there is less risk of having a bad month of sales. With future profits Ernestine hopes to further diversify her inventory as well as construct a new home for her family. She thanks you all for your 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.
