The borrower Mukobelwa is the leader of the lending group Tuchukuliane. She is a courageous and experienced entrepreneur, 38 years old and mother of nine children, who are all engaged in their studies. Her spouse works at a laundromat (he does dry cleaning and washing). The borrower is a vegetable seller. She started this business with funds from her husband, around 12 years ago. This new loan is going to be used to buy vegetables, etc. Drought and various losses from spoilage are the major obstacles in the development of her business. In the future, she wishes to grow her business and educate, feed, and clothe her children. She thus thanks Hekima for its support as a micro-lender to female 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.
