This married mother of six children is working hard to see that all her children acquire education. Therefore, she is taking up a loan to help her expand her business and thus be able to earn more revenue. She also earns extra profits totalling to 100,000 shillings from the sale of bananas.
She belongs to Bukora Twimukye group of members who hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.
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.
