S. Slyvia, a trained midwife, has been providing medical services to her clients at her clinic located in Mubende town, which she set up after retiring from her government job. Here in Uganda one of the common medical problems faced is that there are very few facilities to cater to the sick, and thus very many people here die while giving birth and many more suffer from malaria due to inadequate medical care services. This is where people like Slyvia come in. Her main problem is that she does not have enough quantity and variety of drugs in her drug shop, which is a hindrance to her career and business.

With this loan, Slyvia plans to construct a house extension to accommodate her patients, and to restock drugs in the clinic. This will see her earn more revenue and live a self-sustaining life.

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.
