Suzanne, age 52, is a single mother with 5 children. She has 2 children still attending school. She also cares and provides for her elderly mother. Suzanne is representing the Grace Divine 2 (#1) borrowers' group. She operates an internet cafe in her local community, a business she has had for 4 years, and also owns a small food stand for extra income. She plans on using the loan to buy another computer and printer for the cafe. Her business strategy is to buy quality and modern computer equipment to attract customers. She saves until she can buy a good piece of equipment instead of buying many cheap pieces. Suzanne has received 1 previous loan from Kiva's partner, HOPE Congo. She has a good repayment record. As she continues to grow her internet cafe, Suzanne's goal is to open more cafes around Brazzaville. She hopes to use some of the profits from her business to send her children to study in Europe.

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.
