K. Susan is 24 years old and she belongs to Twendagane Development Group-Jinja. Though she has been inundated with the stereotypical view that women’s chances of success in business are low, she like other entrepreneurial women has chosen to blaze a trail that will go a long way in demystifying that idea. It is 3 years ago that she drew up the blueprint that started her beauty salon, home decoration and poultry businesses in Bugembe-Jinja. She accords credit to her mom whom she says inspired her.

Previously she was working in a local factory. 350,000 shillings is what accrues to her business weekly. Susan is married with 2 kids. With this loan, she wants to buy more chicks for her poultry business.

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.
