Rwashamaire Tukore Group
In this Group: Jemmimah, John, Fausta, Jane, Samuel, Ketty, Molly
Fausta is a resident of Rwashamiri East Town Council, Ntungamo District. She is a widow who lost her husband in 1998 and was left with five children. She has managed to educate her children with so much struggle.

Fausta operates a small retail shop in the trading center with low-capital merchandise and sells fried cassava to residents. However, the state of her residential house is in bad condition. She has approached Ugafode through the group for 1,000,000 Ugandan shillings to enable her to renovate the house, which is almost collapsing on her children. She will save a small portion to buy household-use items for the shop to encourage continuity in the business.

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 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.
