M. Jesca, who belongs to the Wainha Women's group-Jinja, reckons that she has been able to succeed even in the hardest of situations that she has experienced as she operates her 19-year-old business. This 40-year-old married mother of four also credits her resolve, open mindedness and affable nature as winning attributes that she has relied upon in her tailoring business in Jinja Taxi Park-Jinja.

Jesca says that after school she could not find a job so she was compelled to start this business. In a week she makes profits that add up to around $67 and with this loan she is expecting to buy more fabric and textile materials to make more clothes 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.
