The "Business" group has 29 members. Christine et Aline were not able to come the day the loan was granted; they are represented on the photo by their husbands, Patrick and Emile respectively.

Désiré is the Business group representative and lives in Bujumbura. He is single and 28 years old. He is responsible for a young, 20-year-old man who is studying. Désiré has been selling clothes for 10 years. This is his 3rd loan from Turame. His Kiva-sponsored loan will increase his capital and allow him to buy a lot of clothing for resale, so that he can earn more money. In the years to come, he would like to rebuild his assets, as he lost his possessions in a fire at the central market of Bujumbura.

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.
