C2150 Tuzamurane Group
In this Group: Hirariya , Eugenie, Sandrine , Jacqueline , Alexia
Hirariya is 27 years old and married with four children who are 1, 3, 4 and 7 years old. Hirariya is the leader of a group called "Tuzamurane". This group is well known in the clothing business. This is their second successful year in the business and they work every day.

Hirariya and her team realized that the capital they had would not allow them to expand meaningfully. For that reason, they are requesting a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company so that they can purchase additional styles of clothing. With the additional styles, Hirariya and her team will earn more profit which in turn will allow each member of the team to save and improve on the living conditions of their own families.

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.
