Nantumbe Margaret, with hand raised, is the leader of her lending group in Lugazi. She is a 52-year-old single woman, but a happy-go-lucky and cheerful business woman.

Margaret’s ten-year-old flourishing fish-vending business in Kombwe, Lugazi, has enabled her to give her six children an education. Her modest business has been generating her profits to the tune of 30,000 shillings per week.

With this new loan, Margaret wants to be financially empowered and to buy more fish, which she hopes to sell not only to old clients but also to new ones.

Margaret got inclined to this business after her erstwhile husband prevailed upon her to join him. Since then, she has never looked back, notwithstanding the marital adversities the family had. She wants to buy another canoe boat to facilitate easy delivery of fish to her operating area as well as to pay school fees for her children.

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.
