M. Vasita, aged 52, is hard working and determined. She has worked tirelessly in her five-year-old produce business that trades in beans, millet, maize, coffee and other food crops in Nyamirima trading centre, Bushenyi. Her strong work ethic has gotten her far, as her business currently generates 320,000 Ugandan shillings per month. The married mother of three M. began her business with her own savings and has trouble meeting the demand in the area. With this loan, she looks forward to buying more produce which will increase her sales revenue and enable her to meet her family expenses.

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.
