Ismah S. is the leader of his lending group in Mukono. He is a hard working boda boda cyclist in Mukono for a very long time and because of his down to earth nature, Ismah has a number of loyal customers that will always wait for him even if he has other customers to take. He is a father of four and is able to take care of his family using profits from his business. He now has a motorcycle of his own and he plans to have a fleet so that he can hire them out to his fellow youth in the same business. At the moment, he needs a loan to be able to buy another boda boda in addition to the savings from his previous loans.

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.
