Manne Du Ciel Group
In this Group: Kamwanga, Lubingo, Nyanchira
Nyanchira, the featured borrower, is a dynamic entrepreneur who is about 48 years old, married, and the mother of six children. She is also the guardian of several other children. All her children attend school. Her husband sells suitcases.

Nyanchira sells various grocery products and has been involved in this type of commercial activity for the past fifteen years or so. She started her business using a small capital received from her husband. Later on, she joined Hekima's basic community bank program. Today, she is a member of the very small solidarity group "Manne du ciel" which provides slightly higher loan amounts and a longer repayment term.

She will use this new loan to buy two crates of Fanta, two barrels of oil, some soap, Primus (beer), rice etc.

Nyanchira wants to see her children grow up. She would also like to increase the size of her business and build a small shopping center. She thanks Hekima for empowering low-income women excluded from the traditional banking system.

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.
