46-year-old M. Juliet belongs to Balitwegomba Women’s group-Jinja. For eight years now she has been operating her second hand clothes and retail shop businesses along Kamuli road in Jinja. Juliet has been relying on her buoyant disposition to attract clients, most of whom are community members. Her involvement in this business was spawned by savings from her earlier poultry business.

This married mother of four describes herself as fully focused and steadfast. $67 is the approximate amount of money she makes as profits per week.

With her portion of this loan she says she is going to purchase more bales of clothes to sell and to buy retail items such as sugar, soap, maize flour, etc, 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.
