Hope Development Group, Mpigi
In this Group: Esther, Jenifer, Jude, Sarah, Anet
Working hard at achieving her set goals in her five-year-old farming business was to B. Esther, a means to an end in her narrow circumstances. With her hard work ethic in tow, her business took a favorable turn.

This 38-year-old married mother of six boisterous children broke new ground with this determination. Before Esther got to this place of vantage in this business, she was a pump attendant at a local petrol (gasoline) station in her locality. She also ekes out supplementary income from a business selling art crafts.

By and large, Esther’s profits, too, have gained momentum as she has steadily, over the last four years, been making profits totaling up to 150,000 shillings a month. With this loan, she anticipates she will be in position to purchase more poultry and poultry feed for her farm.

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.
