Mukiibi Lawrence, Zikusooka Group
In this Group: Lawrence, Diriisa, Zaituni, Charles, Livingstone, Yudaya, Musoke
Lawrence M. is a member of the Zikusooka women's group in Nkokonjeru and has a clinic that has been operational for 7 years. Before the clinic, Lawrence was a farmer with mostly matooke and sweet potatoes plantations plus cattle for milk and meat. But as a result of getting a surplus income, he started a clinic that he works in it with his daughter, a nursing assistant. He is married with 8 children and his wife is mostly managing their family farm. Two of his children finished school and are now managing their own families, while 6 are still in school. The loans he gets mostly help with school fees and are partly invested in his farm and clinic. Whenever Lawrence repays his loans, he saves and some time he will be able to use the savings to construct a big family house.

He is now in need of a loan to be able to buy some goats and pigs to keep at home to top up the income he gets from selling milk. He is so grateful for the work of Kiva. When I explained to him what Kiva does, he said it's unbelievable.

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.
