Ndejje Tusubira Group
In this Group: Christine, Kayima, Bonny, Mary, Zaituni, Jane, George, John, Patrick, Jeane
John has been in the group since 2003.

He joined the group when he was jobless and depended on riding other people's motorcycles to earn a living. With the help of loans John was able to buy his own motorcycle and is now building a house where he can reside with his family so that he saves on the high cost of renting in the city.

John will use the money to finish his incomplete house and a portion of it to pay school fees for his children. His hard work and dedication have earned him the post of secretary in the group.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of UGAFODE”s Micro Mortgage Loan program.  Many of these clients are currently renting and these loans allow them to own their home and provide for their families. This may be their first home, or renovation to homes not fit for habitation.  By building and renovating, borrowers who utilize these loans have improved health and safety through a stronger structure and better protection from the elements.  UGAFODE offers these loans to cover essential costs like labour and material so borrowers can provide adequate shelter and sanitation facilities for their families.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
