Prosperite 4 Group
In this Group: Felicite Yolande, Marie Brigitte
Felicite, age 53, is the single mother of four children, ages 20 to 29 years old. She has one child currently attending school. She is representing the Prosperite 4 group. Felicite sells manioc and firewood at a stall in a local market. She has been selling for over 20 years! Over the years she has gained a good reputation in the community and loyal customers. She will use the loan to buy more manioc and firewood to sell. Manioc is a very popular Congolese food that is made from the roots of the local cassava plants. It is a white color with a corn meal consistency. Her business strategy is to give a small gift of wood or manioc to her customers so that they will return next time. Felicite has received four previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner, and she has a good repayment record.

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.
