She represents the Matondo 1 group and has earned a living for the last two years by making and selling beignets in a local market. She will use this loan to buy sacks of flour and sugar, oil and firewood. Her business strategy is to sell her beignets very early in the day, when demand is highest. Aimee has received two previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo, and has a good repayment record. Her dream is to one day open a cafeteria. As her business continues to grow, she hopes to be able to buy a plot of land and build a house for her family.

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.
