N. Margaret is 47 years old and married with 7 children aged 25 - 13, with the eldest having a certificate in education while the youngest is in Primary five. Margaret also takes care of 2 orphans. Margaret has had a retail shop in Namilyango Kasenyi for 20 years and she is able to make some profit although the prices of basic items are expensive. She is good at her customer care skills and would like to expand her shop to have more goods for sale and to help educate her children so that they become better off. Margaret needs a loan to be able to buy more stock since this will boost her business, especially during the festive season where the consumption is very high. Margaret is really a hard working and friendly lady.

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.
