Augustine is one of the members of the group Que Dieu Nous Benisse (1). The group consists of 11 micro-entrepreneurs from Brazzaville, Congo. Augustine is a single mother of three children whose ages range from 29 to 36 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 18 years. Her business consists of selling second-hand clothing. She says her biggest challenge so far in her business has been the seasonality of supply from vendors, which causes drastic changes in prices. With this next loan, she will be able to buy in bulk, which will allow her to get through those tough times of low supply without having to pay the extra high prices. Augustine has big dreams for the future and hopes that one day she will be able to travel abroad to study 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.
