B. Deodanta is an individual client in Rukungiri. She is 44 years old and married with 3 children, all are in school. She also takes care of other dependents. Deodanta has been an agriculturalist in Rwamarengye for 5 years, growing and selling matooke (bananas of the plantains type). Being trustworthy has made her successful. She is able to make 100,000 UGX in weekly profits. She started this business after realizing that it was profitable. Previously she was involved in selling coffee. Although she was able to get some profit from that business, it was too tiring for her as a woman. This is one of the reasons why she changed businesses. She needs a loan to be able to buy more matooke 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.
