N. Edisa is a friendly and hard working lady with a business of selling fresh produce, like cabbages, tomatoes, onions, carrots and spices, from her home in Kisoga. She is a widow with 5 children aged 2-14 years. She pays their school fees herself with the help of loans. She buys her goods from farmers in the villages (in addition to the vegetable she gets from her farm) and she sells from her stall. With her portion of the loan, she intends to buy more cabbages, pineapples, carrots, onions, and tomatoes to sell. She has been able to develop herself and her home with the loans by buying more household items. With this share of the loan, Edisa needs to buy more fresh produce 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.
