Her clients like this type of health service because there is a personal touch attached when you visit a private clinic as compared to the big Government hospitals. This is why trained clinicians like Caroline are in business. She offers over the counter health services as well as providing first aid and minor surgeries. Caroline treats her patients well.

Caroline is requesting a loan to help stock her clinic with medicines like tablets, syrups, cotton wool, syringes, needles, so that she can earn a reasonable profit from her business.

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.
