* not pictured
M. Hellen, aged 61, is a hardworking and die-hard agriculturalist who has been maintaining a banana, cattle and coffee plantation for more than 41 years in her home area of Kabukokyero. This fetches her 400,000 UGX per month from milk and banana sales though not enough to sustain her family of 11 children as some are still students at higher institutions of learning.

Hellen has persevered to keep her business enterprise growing. Her aim in taking up this loan is to buy mulches and fertilizer for her plantation and employ additional laborers as she plans to expand and transport her products to bigger markets. This will help her increase productivity, earn more revenue, and live a more 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.
