Anne M. aged 58, is the manager of a Community Bank named “Lisungi Plus” which means “Assistance” in English. It is composed of 19 members united in solidarity for receiving Kiva loans with the goal of developing their businesses.

Anne has been a part of the micro-enterprise world since 1991. She started selling shikwanges (Congolese food)beginning with a capital of $100. She has been with Hope since October 2008. Progressively, her business has prospered thanks to accumulated profit and good management.

The loan she’ll obtain next will be used to buy some sacks of manioc to produce shikwanges and sell them with the goal of increasing her profits. Her business generates a profit of $50 per week. Anne’s ambition is to open a general store. She is a widow and a mother of nine children between the ages 18 and 34. One of them attends school.

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.
