In this Group: Rebecca, Madina, Farima, Edris, Swalik, Yasin, James
M. Rebecca is 42 years old and married with 6 children. Five of her children still attend school. She also takes care of 12 dependants in her village. She is a business lady, and has sold drinking water for the past 7 years. She has also been a farmer in Bijowali for a long time. Her farming has been greatly affected by drought and the lack of quality seeds which has reduced her income. She is able to make 30,000 UGX profit a week. In the future, she wants to buy a larger piece of land for agricultural expansion. She also plans on building a family house.

Rebecca is requesting a loan to help purchase more high quality seeds for cultivation to ensure quality produce. She is such a determined lady with a strong vision of growth and 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.
