S. Majorine is the leader of Myanzi Tukolerewamu group in Mityana. She is a strong and hard working lady and by the time I visited the group, she had just given birth to a baby girl but she managed to come and attend to her duties in the group. She has a retail shop in the Myanzi trading center where she sells sugar, salt, cooking oil, flour and cold drinks plus many other items. She has been doing this for 9 years. She has been in the lending group for 4 years, and she has seen a change. She has been able to increase the stock of her shop as well as buying animals like cows, goats, and hens that she keeps at home. She is in need of a loan to buy more stock for her shop.

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.
