Mamie, aged 52, is the chairwoman of the Community Bank “Resurrection Plus,” which is composed of 10 members united in solidarity to receive loans from Kiva through the MFI HOPE RDC with the goal of developing their businesses.

Mamie has been active in her business since 1994 selling secondhand clothing. Today, she has diversified it by adding smoked and salted fish at the market located west of the city of Kinshasa. She is a loyal client of the MFI HOPE RDC who has already received eight different loans and has repaid them properly. As the fish demand is high in her community, she intends to use the next loan to increase the fish stock and resell them with the aim of increasing her profits. Each week, her business brings in a profit of $70.

Her ambition is to open a storage facility. Mamie is married and has five children, who are aged between 14 and 32 years old. Three of them go to 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.
