By and large, the last 3 years have seen 60 year old N. Christine succeed in making profitable use of the relative short time that she has been at the helm of her fish sales business in Nkokonjeru-Lugazi. She has used her down the line sense of determination to make the progress she only envisaged at the beginning. She was prevailed upon by her husband to begin this business. She supplies the profit deficiencies in her fish sales business with modest additional profits from a firewood sales business.

Christine is a good humored, married woman with 5 children. In a month, she makes as much as 900,000 shillings and, with this loan, she is anticipating revamping her business. She specifically wants to buy more firewood to sell.

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.
