Najjembe Women's Group A, Lugazi
It is after Paul dropped out of school that he joined the business that has expanded over the years. He also sells "matooke" (plantains) some of which he grows himself and this boosts his income. He is very hard-working and reliable and he needs a loan to be able to buy more water for resale as well as buying seeds for planting during this rainy season.
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.
