She started a restaurant business in the outskirts of Bushenyi to help meet the financial challenges of school fees and basic necessities for her family. Reginah hopes to expand her business, which started way-back in 1998, into a modern restaurant in Bushenyi. She works every day of the week apart from Sundays. Reginah hopes to purchase foodstuffs for her restaurant business.
Her clients are people in and around Bushenyi. However, because of the traditional dishes Reginah prepares, she attracts people from areas far and wide and especially those who prefer 'Eshabwe', one of the famous traditional dishes made out of cow ghee.
Reginah's challenges are debts, those who eat at her restaurant on credit, and that sometimes taxes are too harsh.
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.
