Faty B. was introduced to her work by her husband in 1996. She sells automobile parts that she buys as the Matadi port in the province of Bas-Congo in the southwest of the DRC. She acquired solid experience in sales and in the good managing of her business. She is known by drivers and mechanics of Kinshasa who trust her a great deal for quality service and especially for the better quality goods she sells them.

Faty experienced a drop in business in 1997 due to political instability. She began again in 2000 and has prospered through today. She now has capital amounting to over $500. She makes her sales in Matonge, which is the best known and busiest place in Kinshasa. She likes her business because it's profitable and provides the chance for her to meet a lot of people.

She is 31 years old, married, and the mother of three children, who vary in age from 4 to 8. Only two of them go to school. Faty dreams one day of becoming an importer of auto parts directly from the West.

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.
