* not pictured
Irene is 36 years old and has a six-year track record of hard work at her clothing outlet in Kampala. She started her business after she was prevailed upon by close friends and family and after a pep talk. Although she was naïve in the beginning and had some reservations, she has done well and not given in to pessimism. Gradually, her confidence grew and she began to increase the number of customers, endearing them with the good quality of her products. Irene envisions a bright future for her business and word-of-mouth is spreading making her upbeat. She makes a weekly gross sales income of up to 100,000 UGX. Irene also earns additional income from trading in chicks.

Irene is requesting a Kiva loan to purchase more clothing and young chicks to sell.

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.
