Robinah's Group
In this Group: Robinah, Margaret, Christine, Fatuma
N. Robinah is the leader of the Matale loaning group. She is married and helps cater to four dependents. Robinah has a bar business where she sells cold drinks such as sodas, mineral water, wines, beers and local brew (malwa and tonto). She now has a banana plantation with food that she sells and uses for home business consumption. She says she is taking the loan in order to expand and restock because the profits from her business go towards her family. Robinah needs to buy more drinks for her bar so that she can sell more because her loyal customers will drink all that she stocks. She is grateful for her loans and her loaning group because they are cooperative and advise each other through their businesses.

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.
