Aisha is asking for 600,000 shillings in loans to support her farming and poultry business. She has been operating this business for 10 years. Her business provides income to pay for her 3 children’s school fees and medical care for her disabled husband, who does not work.

She sells her goods to nearby grocery shops in her village, but plans to use the loan to help start her own shop so that she can sell her goods on her own. She dreams of having a thriving shop so that she can provide comfortable lives for her children and husband.

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.
