5o year old Mary K. is affiliated with the Myanzi Tukolerewamu Women's Development Group- Mityana. It is now over 8 years since she began her Agro produce sales business in Myanzi. This happily married mother of 6 says she has been selling crops such as cassava, maize, beans, rice, cabbages and Pumpkins at a stall in Myanzi Food market. Mary says she started off as a subsistence farmer mostly growing crops for home consumption. Mary came to the realization that selling some of the crops she grew in her modest farming gardens would bring her some much needed income to sustain and provide better welfare for her family. Weekly this business generates her 30,000 shillings. Most of the clients to her business are wholesale sellers in and around Mityana Town. With this loan, Mary says she is going to improve her stall and also improve her farming gardens.

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.
