Maureen K. is 42 years old, has four children and leads a loan group called Kyosimbaonanya Kikajjo. For the last four years, she has made a living by running a small grocery store in the town of Namasuba. She started this business by investing a small amount of money she earned by farming, and today earns 100,000 shillings a month from the store and a small maize mill that she operates. Maureen has applied for this loan because she would like to expand her shop by buying more items to sell to her customers.

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.
