C 3540 Dushyigikirane Group
In this Group: Pauline, Marie Rose , Fidele, Marie Goreth, Joseline
Pauline is a lady of 38 years who is commonly known in the business of sewing various styles of clothes. She desired to work in a group and she is now the president of a group called “Dushyigikirane”. This is their third successful year in this business and the business hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.

Although Pauline and her team have been in this business for about three years, their earned profit is still too low to expand meaningfully and they believe that a small amount of additional capital would bring a positive change. For that reason, Pauline and her team are requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company to purchase some additional sewing machines as well as clothing items which, in turn, will make them more efficient, effective and more successful.

About VisionFund Rwanda

VisionFund Rwanda (VFR), is the microfinance subsidiary of World Vision and is one of the largest microfinance institutions serving rural underprivileged communities in Rwanda, many of which do not have access to formal financial services.

VFR serves people and communities that are economically productive but low-income, especially in very rural areas. This includes small business owners and salary earners who are looking for opportunities to provide better lives for their families and a promising future for their children.

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.
