She sews and sells most of the clothes she makes and plies her business in Jinja. She was previously engaged in small-scale farming.

Aisha has had her business for 6 years now, and her weekly sales revenue is to the tune of 120,000 Ugandan shillings (UGX). She intends to use her Kiva loan to purchase an electric sewing machine.

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.
