In this Group: Odette , Seraphine, Christine, Josephine, Veronique , James
Odette is 33 years old and the leader of a group called Twisungane. Odette and her team sell a variety of goods in the shop and they have been in this business for a long time. Their business hours are from early in the morning until late in the evening.

Odette and her team need to request a Kiva loan via Vision Finance Company. This loan will hopefully allow them to expand their business by purchasing a large quantity of foodstuffs. With this additional business, they really hope that their profits will increase, which in turn will allow them to create some other sources of income for better financial stability in the future.

By supporting this loan, you are helping Rwandan entrepreneurs build the means to support their families and improve their lives.

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.
