Ms. Kabira is 50 years old but still determined to work until she gets her dream in life. She is a member of Kasenyi United group, which is located in rural Ishaka near the landing site. She has so far borrowed seven times from UGAFODE through its Ishaka branch and has now applied for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 to be able to boost her business by buying soft drinks. She is an enterprising lady who has seen her bar business grow from one level to another since 1980. In addition to the bar business, she has a restaurant, which gives her additional income. Kabira was motivated to start the business because she had enough money for the start up capital. Her clients are mainly people from the nearby locality and the locals of Kasenyi. Kabira is hard working and honest and this has helped her a lot to grow the business despite the challenges of Inflation and competition. She intends to use the money to buy more drinks and foodstuffs for her bar and restaurant, respectively, and she believes that the profit from the business will help her achieve her dream in life.

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.
