K. Agatha began her banana sales business 2 years ago. The 49-year-old, happily married mother of 4 says before she ventured into her current trade, she was operating a used-clothing sales enterprise. Agatha says one of her closest friends was behind the decision to change businesses. This business, which she operates from Ntungamo food market, generates her 100,000 UGX, weekly. Agatha, who belongs to Abarihamwe Women's group, says she is requesting this loan to purchase other foods such as cassava, maize and potatoes to sell.

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.
