Ketty Nagudi's Group
In this Group: Ketty, Harriet, Teddy, Margret
Ketty is a leader of 4 members. The fifth one passed away. Ketty is 37 years old and a single mother with 3 children, who are 15, 11 and 9 years old and all go to school. The community in which she lives and works is semi-urban and within a slum area. This area is prone to flooding in times of rains.

She has operated a salon and sold second hand shoes for 5 and 6 years respectively. The peak times for the shoes business are in the festive seasons and at the beginning of school terms. The challenges include high taxes, high rental fees, getting paid for what she sells on credit, and the flooded surroundings during the rains, which limit movement from one place to another. She brags of having an improved standard of living, and the ability to look after her family without having to depend on someone.

She intends to increase stock, buy a plot of land, and build a house so that she is relieved of paying rent for her house. Ketty 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.
