Namakula Rose Group
She has two meals a day, breakfast and lunch. Her greatest expenses are school fees for her children and rent for her house.
Namakula R. has a retail shop for her business and she buys her products from a nearby market. She works seven days in a week. She has had this business for five years now and it is her first business.
Her main challenge is that since her shop is near the market she has to share her customers with so many other people doing business there. This has reduced the number of clients she has. She has been with MCDT for four years now and she has been with her group for four years. The reason why she joined MCDT is because she wanted to get capital to increase her stock. She will use this loan to buy a variety of items to sell in her shop.

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.
