S. Christine is a happily married woman with five children, two of whom are in school. 48-year-old Christine is the perfect personification of hard work. She has, for the last fourteen years, been multi-tasking, plying her produce sales and grocery business in Mpigi Township. Before she ventured into this business, she was inclined to low-key subsistence farming.

Throughout these years of operating, Christine has painstakingly taken measures aimed at getting into her customers good graces. She attributes her good customer handling line of operation as one of the reasons for her business’s longevity. She is optimistic the future will be even brighter on the acquisition of this loan.

Currently Christine makes weekly profits totaling up to 40,000 shillings. With this loan, she is intent on expanding her business. She wants to buy more of the produce that is in high favor with most of her clientele like maize, avocados, tomatoes, apples, and cassava.

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.
