Gladys K. is a hard working business lady. The 46 year old married mother of 6 school going children sweats her guts out selling agro produce like maize, sorghum, millet, beans, peas, ground nuts in a small rural area of Bisheshe, Ibanda. She has been doing this business for the last 6 years, which she started with her little capital from banana sales. She gets many customers who buy her products for food consumption.

She is able to make 80,000 Ugandan shillings monthly. This is a fair earning by any standards, but she requires a loan that will help her buy more food supplies for the business. Then she will be able to meet the customers' demand and also get more revenue. She belongs to a group of members and they insure each other in paying back the loan.

In order to start her business, she received capital from her banana plantation and it is because of hard work that she was able to get where she is right now.

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.
