Madinah, 40, lives in suburban Kyengera. She is widowed with four children. After the death of her husband, she was determined to work hard because she had no one else to help with the family’s support.

Since then Madina has sold fruits and vegetables like carrots, oranges, green paper and onions at the market. With this business she has been able to educate her children and buy a small piece of land. She has also been able to build a house for her family, though it’s not yet finished.

As a leading member of Sanyu Development Group Madinah is now applying for a 4,200,000 UGX loan through UGAFODE to be split among its members. With this loan she will complete construction on her family’s house. Madinah is hardworking and determined to maintain the group’s partnership with UGAFODE and Kiva lenders.

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.
