* not pictured
This 35-year-old man was a business intermediary before he began his shoes sales and grocery business in Kikko, Kame Valley market of Mukono, 5 years ago. Going by J. Muhamadi’s own account, hard work has gotten him this far. It is the reason why his business generates him reliable weekly profits that add up to 130,000 shillings. With the stability and consolidation in his business operations, have also come some good virtues. The upshot has been that he has been able to reliably provide for his family of 4 school-going children, plus his wife. With this loan, Muhamadi wants to buy more shoes for reselling.

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.
