54-year-old Rehemah has been engaged in a fish sales business for the past 10 years in Kayunga District. The happy-go-lucky happily married mother of eight says that she decided to enter this business upon determining the high demand for fish in her home area. Rehemah also ekes out side profits from a modest goat-selling business. Rehemah says she makes 25,000 shillings per day in her business. With this loan, she will purchase better fishing nets and more fish to resell.

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.
