N. Haawa is a hard working lady who believes that without money, life is hard. She is a single mother of 4 children aged 14 – 3 years ensuring that all their needs are met with the urgency they desire. She has a business of keeping poultry at her home in Walusubi for 3 years and the quality of chicks she gets enable her to stay in business and earn much. This kind of business is too competitive but since her produce is good, she is worried less about this. She is able to make 40,000/= as profit a week hence being able to save to her business and family. This is Haawa’s 1st loan with the group and she is planning to add more capital in her business by buying more feeds and booking more chicks for business expansion.

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.
