Edma is the coordinator of her group, Lamentation de Geremy. She lives in the Trou-du-Nord region in Haiti, where electricity is rare and water is very limited. She has been running her charcoal-selling business for the last four years.

She would like to use this loan to invest in charcoal; she has bought wood for the charcoal. Some other members of the group need a loan for businesses such as selling food products, cosmetics, clothing, shoes, and charcoal. Edma says that her main challenge is to be able to sell more during the economic crisis in Haiti, where there isn’t a lot of money.

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.
