In this Group: Dorothée, Aimée , Linda, Bernadette, Aurelie , Rodelvie, Denise, Brège
Dorothée is member of the community bank group LA PUISSANCE 2 (2) and leads a small subgroup of eight micro-entrepreneurs in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo. For over 15 years, Dorothée has worked hard to support her only son, which became even more difficult after losing her husband. Dorothée runs her own restaurant and drink stand, and would like to take out a loan of 350,000 CFA to purchase additional drinks, fish, chicken and other meats to grill.

Dorothée opens up shop early and closes late, working hard to serve as many clients as possible. In the future Dorothée would like to expand her business to include more drinks, and also branch out into a second activity: selling fabric, or pagnes. She hopes to one day be able to build her own home with her profits.

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.
