Marcelin is married with four children, ages ranging from 3 months to 27 years old. He is very excited to be receiving his second loan from HOPE Congo after having successfully paid off his previous loan. He has had his business for around seven years. His business is a general store, selling many different items including beverages and medical supplies. With this next loan he will concentrate on buying large cases of mineral water and milk. By buying in bulk, he can pass on cost savings to his customer, giving him a competitive advantage. Brice hopes to continue to grow and diversify his store in the future.

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.
