Deborah Nanteza's Group
In this Group: Deborah, Madina, Eunice, Grace, Sarah
Deborah is a leader of 5 members. She is 46 years old and is divorced with 7 children, who are 30, 28, 22, 18, 16, 14 and 12 years old. The youngest four go to school. Her community is semi-urban. She has been operating a pub in the area for 14 years. Her challenges include stiff competition, getting payment for what she sells on credit and sometimes losing it, and high transport costs especially when she goes to the rural areas to collect local brew.

She says that the loans have helped to sustain her business for the 14 years, and enabled her to fend for the family. Her biggest dream is to educate all of her children to a high level. Another plan is to acquire a plot of land in order to build a house. She has successfully paid back more than 10 loans.

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.
