K. Mariam is the leader of Dembe group in Jinja. She is a married woman with a hotel/restaurant business that she has been running for six years. She has four children that are all in school. The family live on top of the restaurant. She is also a farmer and most of the foodstuffs that she prepares in her restaurant come from her garden, hence enabling her to save.

Mariam needs to stock more rice for her restaurant since she doesn’t have a rice plantation at the moment and also to buy more sauce for the same purpose. Getting loans has enabled her to increase her daily income as well as to learn how to manage her business and save.

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.
