Jane O. is the leader of the Beat art and craft group in Jinja. She is a businesswoman whose business is selling local brews, including malwa, tonto, and waragi, to her customers. She now also makes a local brew herself, though on a small scale, and this has helped her to earn much more compared to when she had to buy solely from other brewers.

Jane has a dream of opening up a small retail shop from her home to add on her local brewing and farming business. Since she must sometimes attend to her farming, she employs two people to help her with the local brew business.

She needs a new loan to help with stocking yeast and bananas for making her brew.

Additional Information

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.
