Fifty-four-year-old Robinah N. always takes stock of her business dealings at the end of every operating day. This, the married mother of six says, has helped her give a good account of not only her business, but herself, too. Five years of operating a food sales business at a stall in Buikwe market-Lugazi has kept her well grounded. Prior to running this business, she was a housewife. Much encouragement from a friend helped her take root. In a week, she makes profits that total up to 320,000 shillings. With this loan, she wants to purchase more maize flour, rice, cassava, potatoes and beans for resale.

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.
