In this Group: Peace, Annah, Lauben, Geofrey, Scholar, Possiano
Hard-working, 35-year-old Peace N. has a dependable sense of purpose as regards anything to do with her 8-year-old agro-produce business. She has worked tooth and nail to keep her business, which trades in bananas from the Kashenshero trading center. On the sunny side, her strong work ethic has gotten her far, as her business currently generates 300,000 Ugandan shillings on a monthly basis.

With these modest earnings, she has been able to make the best of the bad bargains that have hit her business occasionally. She gleefully reveals how she is able to educate three out of her four children, who are undergoing different institutions of learning respectively with her small profits.

With this loan, she envisions being financially empowered to buy more stock of bananas and further pay rent for the business shop as she looks at expansion into bigger markets and also to improve her household income from the sales of her business.

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.
