N. Christine is the leader of her lending group in Mukono. She is a hard-working and devoted lady with a butcher shop in Kisowera. Christine sells raw pork meat by the kilogram, as well as roasted pork, to her customers especially in the afternoons and evenings. She is able to make 100,000/ UGX per week.

For five years, her business has been running smoothly but lacked enough capital, and loans have helped this. Christine now needs a loan to buy two pigs that will be sold for meat at her shop.

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.
