Mawazo is the vice president of the business group Uamsho. She is divorced and the mother of five young children. Mawazo is a vendor of a local juice commonly known as "Madrakwa". In addition, she also sells foodstuffs (tomatoes, peanuts, potatoes, beans, etc.). She started her business with a loan from IMF Hekima.

This new loan will serve to supply Mawazo with two baskets of tomatoes, one basket of peanuts, and 50 kg of sorghum. Mawazo aims to improve her business. Her current challenge is the constant worry that she will run out of her supply of goods. Thus, she is thankful to Hekima for their support and empowerment of women who are small entrepreneurs.

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.
