Hard working and cooperative Edith K. has been running a general merchandise retail shop from Burema trading centre in Kihihi, where she sells general merchandise and basic items for home use. She has been operating this business for over 6 years. She started this business with capital she got from farming business and so far it earns her 300,000 Ugandan Shillings. The mother of 8 children confirms that she has had problems in restocking her business as the stock available is not satisfying for the customers' demands.

Therefore she is seeking a loan to help her buy more goods for the business for resale in hopes of earning more income to cater for her family's needs, thus improve her standard of living. She belongs to Burema Women’s group with other members who hold each other accountable in paying back the loan.

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.
