Tukwatanise Group
In this Group: Janat, Daniel, Patrick, Robinah, Resty, Betty, Penninah, Muhammed
Janat is a 33-year-old resident of Muhororo Town in Uganda, who has three children. Since 2005, she has been selling fresh foods and agricultural produce in order to diversify her sources of income.
She has approached Ugafode for a loan through the group so that she can buy a fridge, which will help her to keep her perishable foods and fruits in good condition. Her dream is to educate all her children but she also says that she is challenged by a lack of capital.
Janat describes herself as hard-working lady. She thanks Kiva lenders, Ugafode and the group members for partnering with her.

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.
