Rebecca, 43, has been engaged in a pub business in Kayunga for nine years. The happily married mother of six offers her patrons a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Nine years running this business has made her realize that she needs to constantly restock in order to meet the demands of her increasing clientele. People all over Uganda like consuming alcohol and it's quickly becoming second nature in the country, especially in the urban areas. Rebecca also farms. Her weekly profits total up to 185,000 Ugandan shillings. She plans to use this loan to purchase more crates of beer for resale, as it is consumed more than any other beverage.

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.
