* not pictured
37-year-old N. Zam is an optimist; she prefers looking on the positive side of things even when circumstances are not in her favor. She says this has saved her soft drink business from running into the many stonewall challenges that often strike at the root of small businesses like hers. Fifteen years is the time she has been in this business. Her longevity she says is all due to her zeal, involvement, hard work and determination.

Zam began this business with savings from her farming business. She bought a refrigerator first. In a week, she makes profits that add up to 100,000 shillings. With these she has been able to cater well for her family's needs. With this loan, she wants to purchase more crates of soda and also buy another refrigerator.

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.
