La Confiance (3) Group
This is Jeanine's second loan cycle with HOPE Congo. She is going to use her share of this loan to purchase additional stock of used clothing for her store. She also makes fresh doughnuts and cold drinks for her customers who come to purchase clothes. Jeanine has noticed that prices in the market have been increasing, but she is working to differentiate her clothing store by providing a higher level of customer service.
In the future, Jeanine hopes that her increasing business activities will allow her to provide a high level of education to all of her children. She dreams of one day traveling abroad, to work directly with one of her suppliers.

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.
