It’s been one-and-a-half years since K. Prossy began her small retail shop in Bukakala, Mpigi. Her startup story is fascinating: with only two bars of soap, this young, 26-year-old woman began her sugar, soap and food retail shop.

Prossy’s reliable stock in trade at the start was her welcoming nature and she was able to strike a chord with most of her clients. As a result she has been able to consolidate her minimal 10,000 shillings a week. She also sells art crafts to supplement her profits.

With this loan, Prossy wants to buy more merchandise for 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.
