* not pictured
27-year-old N. Fatuma has come a long way in her retail shop business. It has now been four years of hard toiling and constant planning to stay ahead and above her competition.

This married mother of three is full of optimism and it’s one of the factors that has contributed to her elevation. Fatuma is a young woman with every quality to succeed and this can manifestly be shown in the 250,000 shillings she makes in a month.

Fatuma also sells new clothes in her shop and this gives her extra income. She has made sure that all her children are in school. With this loan, she wants to revitalize her business by buying more retail items 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.
