27-year-old Falida speaks in high terms of her beauty salon business in Mukono town, which she has been overseeing for the last 8 years. Going by the accounts of many of her close associates and friends, Falida is one lady with an aura of friendliness. That character trait has come in handy many times as she goes about her business in her salon. Her happy-go-lucky disposition has endeared her to many of her old and new clients alike. She says that in her type of business, being good natured, humorous and easy-going are invaluable stocks in trade. In the past 8 years she has come to terms with that fact. Falida knows where her advantage is and she says with prayers, unwavering hard work and persistence, she has success within her grasp.

Falida says she makes approximately 120,000 Ugandan shillings in weekly profits. With this Kiva loan, she says she is going to purchase more cosmetics and other salon products for use in her salon.

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.
