Prosperite 2 Group
In this Group: Gertrude, Edith, Serge
Gertrude represents the Prosperite 2 Group. She is 45, married and has two children aged sixteen and eighteen years old. They are both currently attending school.

For the past twenty years Gertrude has sold clothes at the market. She has gained a good reputation in her community, and many people know about her shop. Her business strategy is to publicize her business in her community.

Gertrude has received six previous loans from HOPE Congo, Kiva's partner, and has a good repayment record. She is applying for a 2,200,000 XAF loan for her group and will use her portion to buy more clothes to build up her clothing stock.

In the future she would like to sell clothes in bulk to vendors instead of being a vendor herself. She hopes her business thrives far into the future.

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.
