Florence M. is a very hard-working lady who has managed to run her retail shop for 3 years while also selling old clothes in daily markets in and around Jinja. She has seen her businesses grow and has built a strong customer base in almost all of the markets she moves to with the help of loans.

Florence needs a loan to help buy more products for her shop, as well as a bale of used clothes for sale.

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.
