48-year-old K. Robinah has for the last 16 years been able to reliably subsist on the profits from her grocery, salon and commercial motorcycle businesses in Buyala-Jinja. These have been her financial sources of livelihood. With profits from these 3 businesses, Robinah has gone out of her way to see to it that her family’s welfare, especially the educational welfare of her 9 children, is fully catered to.

Her roots in business can be traced to her erstwhile salon business. As is the story with any person running 2 or 3 businesses, a sense of determination and support from family is essential, she says. She is happily married, and in a week, she makes profits that total 200,000 shillings. With this loan, she wants to buy more groceries for her store and some salon equipment.

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.
