Andrew K. is the leader of his lending group in Jinja. He is 35 years old and married with two children, aged 6 years and 18 months. He has had a business running a computer café on Kutch Road in Jinja for one and a half years from which he makes 180,000 Ugandan shillings as weekly profits. In addition to providing Internet services, he offers photocopying, scanning and training services, hence making more profits. When Andrew was first employed, it was in this business. That is when he got the idea of starting his own business and it’s working for him.

He needs a loan to help buy a photocopying machine for his business since this will continue to diversify the range of services he offers. He has a goal of expanding his business by buying more computers and building his family house and owning a farm. He is a hardworking and friendly man, which helps attract more customers to his business.

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.
