Winnie N. is the leader and member of the Kamu kamu women’s group in Lugazi, which she joined last year. She is 32 years old and is married with 4 children, but she also cares for an orphan belonging to her late brother. Her husband is a teacher in Lugazi and, together, their dream is to see their children receive the best education possible so that they can have a bright future.

She has a business whereby she buys smoked dry fish and mukene from the Senyi landing site and later sells such fish to her customers in Kinyoro and at the daily markets around Lugazi and Jinja. She is seeking a loan to expand her business by purchasing additional fish.

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.
