* not pictured
40-year-old K. Berna has a 15 year track-record of hard work in her retail business to maintain. Resting on any kind of laurels is not a proposition she is likely to stoop to, given what is at stake. She has 5 kids and other dependants for whom to provide welfare. She also has to pay for their education. Originally, this happily married mother of 5 was operating a restaurant.

In a week, her business generates 60,000 shillings. With this loan, she is talking of expansion. This expansion, she says, will be in the form of substantial purchases of more stock for resale.

Berna belongs to K. Group Rubaga.

Additional Information

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.
