Rose is one of the members of the group Bana Na Nzambe 1 (2). The group consists of nine micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Rose is single with 2 children, ages 26 and 28 years old. She is very excited to be receiving her second loan from HOPE Congo after having successfully paid off her previous loan. She has had her business for around two years. Her business consists of selling general items, but the bulk of her profits comes from the selling of telephone minutes. With this next loan she will be able to buy more telephone recharge cards as well as some other inventory. With future profits she plans on diversifying her inventory to include other telephone networks. She dreams of training each of her children to start and operate their own business. 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.
