N. Alice is the leader of her lending group in Mukono and a widow with three children, two of whom are still in school. She has owned a retail shop in Bajjo for 13 years; it is from this shop that she earns her children’s school fees. She also has a restaurant in the same area that prepares local foods of all kinds. It is the profits from her shop, and with the help of loans, that helped her start her restaurant business.

Alice needs a loan to reinvest in her businesses, as well as to pay fees for her children's education at the beginning of this school term.

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.
