Sarah N., the chairperson of Namulesa Twekembe women’s group in Lugazi, is a married woman who has owned a salon business for five years now. Selling braids, weaves and chemicals, her business is thriving because all women like to make themselves look good. As well, just like most rural women, she is a farmer growing matooke, beans, maize and cassava with her husband.

Sarah is so grateful for previous loans that enabled her to start up her salon and now manage her family’s needs and children’s school fees. She is now requesting a loan to buy additional salon stock since it’s the start of the festive season

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.
