B. Matia, aged 37, the leader of "T. Women's Group" of Ibanda, is a married man with six children. He operates a retail shop in Kyarutanga trading centre that sells general merchandise.

His previous loans have helped in increasing the stock in his shop and this is the same reason he has applied for a new loan. And in future, he hopes to turn his shop into wholesale sales. This will help him earn more revenue and cover his daily-living needs.

He is also a farmer growing various food crops for sale and this contributes to his income.

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.
