Beatrice is the treasurer of the Naboti business group. She is an experienced businesswoman and mother to six children who all go to school.

Beatrice sells food products. She conducts her sales from a small warehouse, sometimes from her home. She started this activity with the basic loan granted by the Hekima MFI about two years ago. This new loan will allow her to buy three sacks of cassava and some plantain bananas, potatoes, zucchinis, etc.

Her goals are to expand her business, to feed and educate her children, and to buy a house.

Beatrice would like to thank the Hekima MFI for supporting small business owners through microfinance.

Au finish, elle remercie fortement Hekima pour son soutien en microcrédit aux petits 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.
