In this Group: Amina, Shakira, Christine, Sarah, Irene, Aisha, Magaret, Florence, Annet, Samuel
Sarah has a drug shop and does farming to supplement the meager income from the drug sales. She started this business to sustain her family. She wants the money to buy more drugs for the shop.

It's been the rainy season and usually more people are prone to diseases during such seasons. It's also approaching festive season where there are many disease outbreaks because of celebrations. So when she has enough stock, she will be able to meet her customers' needs and also make more profits. Her clients are mainly community members.

Her hopes for the future are to expand the drug shop and maybe get outlets. Her major challenge is taking drugs on credit. She is hard-working and resilient.

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.
