Balitwegomba Women's Groupa
In this Group: Nimba, Abdallah, Christine, Monica, Jesca, Asina
Nimba N. is a very hard working lady with a business selling used clothes in the daily markets in Jinja. She is a member of Balitwegomba women’s group and is a single lady, but she decided to join this trade to be able to cater for her children, especially to pay school fees to give them a brighter future. She has hope that with their education, and after getting decent jobs, they will be able to cater for her during her old age. Nimba has customers in all markets. She goes to Kampala once or twice a week to buy a bale or two of clothes. These days she has even started to buy from Jinja, and this saves on the transport costs.

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.
