For the last five years, she has had a water and juice packing business and she is able to make 60,000/= profit weekly. Although her business is doing well, she is adversely affected during the rainy season as then the consumption and sales are very low. She endeavors to sell more with favorable prices. Sylivia is grateful that she is able to pay school fees out of her profits as well as expand her business by buying more raw materials. She is seeking a loan in order to buy more polythene bags for packing her solids.

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.
