Matondo 3 Group
In this Group: Clementine, Josephine, Mbimi Jean, Boutoto Guy, Clarisse
Clementine, age 49, is a single mother with five children. She has two children still attending school. Clementine is representing the Matondo 3 group. She owns a business where she makes and sells fruit juice. She also sells tables and chairs on the side to make extra income. She will use the loan to open a small butcher shop and to buy firewood. She feels there is a need in her area for another butcher shop. She hopes to continue to make and sell her fruit juice as well. She is buying the firewood because of the lack of dependable, consistent electricity, which makes her work difficult.
Clementine has received two previous loans from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. She hopes to continue to expand her business and to offer a large variety of meat in her shop. She would like to teach her family how to run her business and give it to them one day.

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.
