Trinity Wome's Group
In this Group: Jaliah, Rosemary, Merab, Grace, Milly, Hadijah, Sirivia
Jaliah is a farmer. She also operates a retail shop in Lyantonde town to supplement her income so that she can adequately meet the needs of her family, since she is a single mother.

She wants to grow vegetables so that she can sell them to the people in town, since there is ready market. She does not have the time, however, but she feels that if she hired someone, he would do a good job in a very short time.

Therefore, the loan will help her with hiring the labour as well as buying seeds and pesticides. She is a hard working and innovative woman who encourages other women to be innovative.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of UGAFODE's program for clients who live in isolated rural areas with limited access to financial services. Uniquely, UGAFODE focuses its efforts on agricultural areas in Uganda that are over 50 km from their branches, providing loans to both groups and individual borrowers. The organization believes that the risk of offering services to remote clients is outweighed by the benefits to customers and their often underserved communities.

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.
