* not pictured
Zaituni has been engaged in a food sales business for the last five years in Jinja. The happily-married mother of four says she set forth in her business with savings from selling firewood. Rice and sweet potatoes is what she principally sells and these are foods which sell lucratively on the food markets in Jinja and other towns. She operates in one of the busiest food markets in Jinja.

Zaituni is hoping in the forthcoming months after the acquisition of this loan, she will be able to buy a plot of land. As of now though, she is hoping her business prospects will improve. She plans to use her loan to purchase more bags of rice and sweet potatoes 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.
