In this Group: Marie Louise, Solange Christine, Charlotte
Marie is 53 and single with four children, ages 18 to 33 years old. Her youngest is currently attending school. For the past 10 years, Marie has sold a variety of products at a stand at the market. Her business strategy is to allow loyal and trustworthy customers to buy her merchandise on credit. This helps attracts new customers and keep older customers coming back to her business. Marie has successfully repaid five previous loans from the Kiva partner HOPE Congo.

Marie is requesting a loan as a representative of the Jehovah Jireh 2 group. She will use her portion of the loan to buy food products, such as oil, rice, and sugar, as well as hair styling products. In the future, Marie hopes to be able to have a large grocery store one day in its own building.

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.
