Abekundire Women's Group
In this Group: Charity, Betty, Willington, Stephen, Vicent, Robert, Betty, Flora, Sharon
Abekundire Women's Group is a group of men and women, living within Ibanda town council, mainly traders, farmers and several other occupations.

Charity, now 45 years old, is a widow member of the group who operates a small retail shop and raises poultry for supplementary income. She has responsibility for taking care of six children, whom her late husband left behind. Despite being a single mother, Charity has been able to cope with life and can now ably look after her family with ease.

Charity's main challenge is that she wants to construct a permanent poultry house in order to protect her birds from theft and bad weather. She has, therefore, applied for a loan of UGX 500,000 to assist her in buying construction materials.

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.
