Liliane is part of the Rafikimwema group and lives in Bujumbura. She is 33 years of age and is married to Bernard, a hairdresser. Together they have four children aged between 2 and 13, three of whom are at school.

Liliane has provided a battery charging service for four years. This is her third loan with Turame. She plans to use the Kiva loan to buy another motor to charge batteries, as her first one is damaged. She will then be able to sell her services well and earn more money.

Over the coming years Liliane would like to work without having to take out loans. She would also like to see her children have a good future, have enough food, and be able to complete their education.

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.
