Nina N. is the leader of the Kisakye group in Rubaga. She has a pork joint that also acts as a bar in the social centre of Mengo. She has sold beer, soda, wine, water, and other drinks for a year now but the pork for a long time.
She is a 28 year old mother of three children, aged between 10 and 4 years old. They are all attending school. She also cares for three sisters, including paying their school fees.
Nina says that her level of cleanliness and good customer care have kept her business moving and enabled her to make more profits. She needs a loan to help buy more stock of drinks for her bar and more pork for sale. She hopes to buy a plot of land for her children and educate them further.
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.
